Preventing diabetes and diabetes complications in the African American and Hispanic communities in eastside and southwest Detroit.

REACH Staff: Family Health Advocates

Family Health Advocates (FHAs) are dedicated to empowering African American and Latino families who have Type 2 diabetes. By educating, supporting, demonstrating, and providing health awareness, FHAs help families to diminish the risk of diabetes in future generations, prevent its devastating complications, and assist families in being better health consumers and establishing a better quality of life. FHAs work closely with doctors to help build strong, long lasting doctor-patient relationships. FHAs also collect important data to track and evaluate the project's success and assist families in using an internet-only computer device to seek health care information and resources that are available in the community through the REACH Website.
