Abstract

ABSTRACT: Defy Diabetes! was a 2-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 STEP (Spring into Healthy Habits) from St. John Community Health, Warren, Michigan, to teach Health Living classes in faith communities and monitor diabetes management in primary care offices yielded positive outcomes. This article reports the impact on the faith community nurses from participating in Defy Diabetes! and teaching Healthy Living classes.
