Stopping Diabetes in its Tracks

The 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 objectives.

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 as appropriate.
