The Houston Diabetes Control Program is part of an effort by the State of Texas and approximately 30 other programs throughout the United States to ensure that persons with diabetes-related complications receive ongoing state-of-the-art preventive care and treatment.
For the past 5 years, this program has served an urban, high-risk patient population with special cultural, ethnic, and economic challenges.
The intervention has included the development and implementation of protocols for the prevention and care of diabetes-related complications of the eyes, lower extremities, and cardiovascular system, as well as general management of diabetes and patient and professional education.
