95 populations face unique challenges in meeting health and wellness goals including a lack of proximity to healthcare facilities, high chronic disease burden, and poverty. 95 residents are also less likely than metropolitan residents to participate in clinical research trials, which can widen the disparities in treatment and interventions that meet their needs. The 95 Outreach Center seeks funding to partner with public libraries to address the following objectives to overcome obstacles and reduce disparities faced by 95 populations: 1 educate people with diabetes on how to manage this chronic condition, 2 provide these individuals with information about how to seek credible, high quality health and medical information to enhance health literacy and diabetes management skills, and 3 to introduce the tenets and importance of clinical research in diverse population, while promoting awareness of NIHs program. In conjunction with health 12s and public libraries, the 95 Outreach Center proposes to hold a 6-week educational program, called Living with Diabetes at 2 95 public library sites in Western New York.
