Abstract

Abstract: The Recipe For Health educational initiative was designed to increase knowledge of diabetes prevention and management for African Americans (AAs) in rural Alabama. By providing culturally competent information, training, and skill-building activities to lay leaders in faith-based settings who teach church members, Recipe For Health can create a ripple effect of diabetes knowledge that could lower disease complications in the AA population.
