Faith Based Organization Diabetes Initiative
We Have To Do Something Different
Our communities are under siege from diabetes and show no signs of improvement.
African Americans are 1.7x more likely to have diabetes than Whites.
African Americans have greater vision loss, amputations and kidney failure in our communities from diabetes than Whites do.
African Americans are also more likely to suffer strokes as a result of diabetes.
Some of the reasons that contribute to widespread diabetes in our communities are;
Lack of health literacy
Poor food choices in our neighborhoods
Lack of trust of medical industry
Our solution is to share our evidence-based diabetes curriculum, delivered through smartphones, so that you can administer to your members.
Hico Health is healthcare company that partners with Faith Based Organizations (FBOs) like yours to provide a lifestyle change program to teach church members how to manage their type 2 diabetes and hypertension more effectively.
Founded by a Pharmacist/CDE, our program is safe, secure and effective.
Our on demand video education is based on the American Association of Diabetes Educators 7 Self Care Behaviors; the gold standard in diabetes self management education and advocacy.
