Hypothesis: Adoption of the SDRI Community Scientist/Especialista model will improve adherence to ADA recommended guidelines for HbA1c testing for Hispanic/Latino adults with T2D.
Participants known to have or considered to have diabetes by the Principal Investigator (PI) will be offered enrollment in the study, and their HbA1c will be tested using the Afinion HbA1c point-of-care analyzer. The subjects will be stratified into two groups: HbA1c <7.5 and HbA1c ≥7.5%. All other potential participants (unknown diabetes diagnosis) will be tested for HbA1c as the site standard practice. All participants with HbA1c <7.5 will be followed up at 6 months; those with HbA1c ≥7.5% will be followed up at 3 months and again at 6 months post enrollment. Participants with HbA1c ≥7.5% will be invited to participate in SDRI’s existing educational programs.
Therapy will be provided as per standard of care by the participant’s treating physician and is out of the scope of this proposal. Those with an HbA1c at or above 7.5% will be offered diabetes education and support through the tele-health platform and/or in person. Participants not known to have diabetes but with an HbA1c result >6.4% will be referred to a local provider for further evaluation and possible diagnosis of diabetes.
