Health Disparities Collaborative | Community Collaboration
Watch as we discuss two programs tackling complex health issues by prioritizing the collective participation of community residents and multi-sector partners.
You'll learn about the Diabetes Impact Project - Indianapolis Neighborhoods (DIP-IN). DIP-IN's goal is to address health disparities by reducing the burden of diabetes in three under-resourced and predominantly minority communities within Indianapolis. The model spans the prevention spectrum and includes resident steering committees, private industry, academia, governmental public health, community development, and local community-based organizations. This eight-year, $12 million initiative is funded in part by Eli Lilly and Company and led by IUPUI's Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health.
CareSource Foundation also discusses Healthy Beginnings At Home (HBAH), which provides rental subsidies and housing stabilization services to Medicaid-eligible pregnant women who are near homeless or experiencing homeless and are at greater risk of infant mortality. This pilot program launched in 2018 by CareSource, CelebrateOne, Homeless Families Foundation, Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA), and Nationwide Childrens Hospital.
