Diabetes Impact Project – Indianapolis Neighborhoods (DIP-IN)

Welcome! We are glad that you are interested in finding out more about the Diabetes Impact Project (DIP-IN). Through this project, we plan to:

  • reduce complications and improve quality of life of people living with diabetes
  • increase awareness of risk factors for diabetes and encourage people at high risk to be screened so they can take action
  • foster an environment (physical and social) that supports greater health and well-being for all residents
  • increase community capacity to lead DIP-IN initiatives through a focus on civic engagement and enhanced community leadership.
