2007 Disparities Partnership Forum
The First Disparities Partnership Forum, “Uniting in the Fight Against Diabetes and Obesity: A Discussion on Race Disparities, Type 2 Diabetes and the Obesity Epidemic” was developed to facilitate dialogue among leaders from key national organizations regarding the urgency of the type 2 diabetes and obesity epidemics in specific populations in the United States including: Native Americans (N/A), African Americans (A/A), Hispanics/Latinos (H/L) and Asian/Pacific Islanders (AAPI).
The goal was to clarify key challenges contributing to disparities in prevention and treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes. The day’s program and dialogue gave voice to those minority populations most effected by this rapidly growing epidemic. This forum also empowered the groups represented, to identify priority areas of concern and offer viable solutions for these challenges particularly at the community level where life happens! Even local, state and national policy recommendations were grounded in their impact on the community.
This Forum was the first annual convening of key Native American, African American, Latino and Asian/Pacific Islander leadership to address the serious issue of race disparities around this alarming health problem in America.
