“Characterization of Hispanic/Latino Patients with Diabetes and their Barriers to Diabetes Care Delivery at a Community Health Center: A Feasibility and Pilot Study”

The overarching goal of this study is to characterize Hispanic and Latino patients with diabetes receiving care at Affinia Healthcare, St. Louis, MO, and to identify patient related factors that predict failure to achieve six recommended ADA targets: glycemic control, blood pressure control, smoking cessation, physical activity, statin use, and aspirin use.
