School of Social Work Launches Diabetes Education Awareness Program

During National Diabetes Awareness Month in November, the School of Social Work’s Multidisciplinary Gerontology Center launched its “Brown Sugar: Diabetes Education for African Americans and Persons of Color.” Dean Sandra Edmonds Crewe hosted a webinar to kick off the program. Additionally, Jennifer Hamilton of the District of Columbia Department of Parks and Recreation presented a webinar for participants on her experience as a caregiver. This education initiative will engage other disciplines to present an ongoing dialogue aimed at prevention and effective management of diabetes.
