UNMC/Nebraska Medicine received private funding to improve Nebraska's ability to address diabetes care, education, and prevention efforts over a three-year period.  The UNMC team is working closely with local Health Departments, hospitals, health clinics, and local organizations from the Hastings and Wayne communities on this initial pilot project.  

A community coalition has worked over the past year to increase awareness of pre-diabetes and encourage testing.

Long-term outcomes:

  • Improve diabetes care and management of people with diabetes
  • Improve individual's knowledge and skills to navigate health care and community systems to help manage diabetes or prevent the onset of diabetes
  • Decrease percent of the population with diabetes or pre-diabetes
  • Increase the number of individuals screened for diabetes or pre-diabetes
  • Decrease the number of patients experiencing adverse outcomes from diabetes
