ABSTRACT: Defy Diabetes! was a two-year grant to Seton Health, Troy, New York, from the New York State Health Foundation to impact diabetes in the state. Development of a program using the Chronic Care Model to teach Health Living classes in faith communities and monitor diabetes management in primary care offices yielded positive outcomes. This article reports on Healthy Living class outcomes for individuals at risk for or with diabetes and partnership between the Certified Diabetes Educators and faith community nurses.
