D4P from HCAN and YMCA honored as inspire award winner
Because social determinants surrounding race, ethnicity and income can often have an impact on health outcomes, Health Care Access Now and the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati teamed up to offer type 2 prediabetes prevention (DPP) to low-income and minority patients. The Health Collaborative recognized the D4P program as the winner of the Gen-H Award as part of the 2017 Inspire Healthcare dinner and awards. The purpose of the Gen-H Award is to recognize an individual, team, or organization that has demonstrated progress on the Gen-H goal of making the healthier choice also being the easy choice, when it comes to deciding on where to live, work, learn or play. Gen-H, or “The Health Generation,” means all of us working together to make health and health care a value we share in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
