Stopping Diabetes in its Tracks (SDIT) collaboration proposes an integrated set of community, clinic, and hospital
interventions to prevent and control type 2 diabetes in the Pomona community
and to demonstrate a model that is replicable, scalable, and sustainable.
The approach is novel in a number of important ways:
- The program brings together five institutions prominent in their respective
fields, each with unique strengths and resources. These include: Pomona
Valley Hospital Medical Center and its foundation, a community clinic
system (Pomona Valley Health Center), Claremont Graduate University and
its excellent programs in technology, geospatial analysis, evaluation,
and epidemiology, Community Translational Research Institute and Heluna
Health with expertise in managing multi-site public health, health care,
and research collaborations.
- The program engages an extended network of community partners in a systemic
way to call upon their unique resources and, in turn, contribute to their
respective and overlapping mission’s relative to the program’s
SDIT offers free classes for individuals with prediabetes who meet the
program criteria via the Diabetes Prevention Program and individuals with
diabetes will be offered Diabetes Self-Management Education classes at
no cost. Participants in both programs will be assisted by a navigator
team consisting of master’s level social workers and nursing students.
This navigator team will assure that participants identify and gain access
to and receive follow-up from the community partners and their resources
