Self-management is a requisite skill for improving health outcomes in persons with diabetes. Incarcerated persons with diabetes, among the most vulnerable in our society, have numerous multilevel challenges to engaging in diabetes self-care management. Join us for a presentation discussing these challenges with Assistant Clinical Professor for the UConn School of Nursing, Louise Reagan, PhD, APRN, ANP-BC. Learn more about how findings from research with incarcerated persons were applied to the development of a Diabetes Self-Management program and hear about ongoing and future research in this area.
