The El Paso Diabetes Association is a very active service organization. The director and staff are always in search of new and innovative ways to serve their community and fulfill a mission they take very seriously. As an agency they are a great team player, and make the El Paso service network more effective and efficient because of their presence.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My business partner is diabetic and he received assistance from EPDA when he was first diagnosed. They helped him learn to cook and plan menus so slow the progression of his disease.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them obtain more money so they can provide more services to prevent and manage diabetes.

EPDA provides many services for people with diabetes in the area. They have diabetes educators who understand and know how to teach patients and ways to address their barriers. This organization has been helpful in engaging the public to raise awareness of diabetes through events such as the diabetes walk. They have also been very helpful in engaging physicians to address diabetes and understand clinical care guidelines. Great group!

reaching underserved patients with diabetes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

incorporate community health worker models in their structure, especially since EPDA counts on certified diabetes educators that can provide oversight to a core team of community health workers. This would help EPDA reach more communities and underserved areas.
