Over 9.1% of DC residents have diabetes. While the rate is on par with national averages, in predominantly minority, economically depressed, and educationally disenfranchised communities, the rates of diabetes are much higher. To bridge the gap, ZuriWorks worked the Department of Health Office of Cancer and Chronic Disease to establish a digital community of practice housed at diabetesfreedc.com. The community of practice is a resource for employers, health care providers, insurers, and residents to access and share resources on diabetes prevention and management.
