  1. Social support among African-American adults with diabetes, part 1 : Theoretical framework.

    Article - En anglais

    Diabetes mellitus affects African Americans in disproportionate numbers relative to whites.

    Proper management of this disease is critical because of the increased morbidity and mortality associated with poor diabetes management.

    The role of social support in promoting diabetes management and improved glycemic control among African Americans is a little-explored area.

    This article, the first in a two-part series, provides a theoretical framework for examining the relationship between social support and glycemic control among African-American adults.
