Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) Mini-Grant Funding Opportunity 2020

WellFlorida Council is pleased to announce the availability of mini-grant funding to expand access to DSME programs in North Central Florida.

People with diabetes who complete a diabetes self-management education (DSME) class are better able to manage their disease and prevent or delay complications. DSME is NOT a 24-hour nurse hotline or a brochure. Rather, it is a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to disease management that meets national standards.

The purpose of this funding is to reduce health inequity in areas with limited or no access to quality DSME services and to increase organizations’ ability to provide quality diabetes self-management education services. These areas include rural communities without a recognized or accredited DSME program and populations which experience high rates of type 2 diabetes, its complications, and diabetes-related death. This funding is also available to organizations which are providing diabetes education or wish to provide diabetes education, even if they are neither DSME accredited/recognized nor plan to work towards DSME accreditation/recognition. The inclusion of Community Health Workers in this process is encouraged.
