Adapting an Evidence-Based Curriculum for the Somali Community
The National Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based curriculum, but in practice, this curriculum has not been a perfect fit for the Somali clients served by Wellshare International. The presenters will offer insights into novel ways to use evaluation findings to improve services to your target population, and discuss how they used religion-based health messages and revamped messages about food groups, calories, and culturally-specific foods.
