"Evaluating the Capacity to Implement Evidence-based Diabetes Prevention Interventions in a Comprehensive Community Development Initiative"

The project had 3 aims: 1)Participant-level: to determine the programmatic reach to potential end-users, 2)Program-level: to determine P2H’s adherence to evidence-based diabetes prevention recommendations and potential supportive activities provided by Beyond Housing, 3) Organizational level: to identify barriers and facilitators to adopting and implementing evidence-based diabetes prevention guidelines into P2H.
This pilot project will serve as a basis for understanding Beyond Housing’s capacity to adopt evidence-based diabetes prevention guidelines and lead to additional funded research on the implementation process.
