The Baxter International Foundation and Direct Relief Launch Program to Improve Diabetes Care in Underserved Communities

FHPC receives a grant to improve the care our patients receive for their Diabetes.

  • Family Health Partnership Clinic will use the award to implement a ‘Health Coaching Program’ developed by the University of California, San Francisco’s Center for Excellence in Primary Care, dedicating a nurse and health coach to improve health literacy and access to healthy foods, promote lifestyle and behavioral changes and increase patients’ awareness of their glucose levels. Those enrolled in this program will have their charts reviewed regularly by the clinic’s medical director, a specialist in diabetes management.
