Evidence in Action: Scaling A Program That Stops Diabetes In Its Tracks

Every day we see strategies that are working and delivering results in a rapidly changing world. This Evidence in Action blog series highlights the voices of social innovation organizations and spotlights effective interventions in communities across the country and evidence-based policy and practice leaders to elevate both the results-driven solutions being advanced to help solve our most pressing social problems and to describe the evidence-based federal programs that are critical to developing and scaling effective human and social services. 


Today, Coalition organization Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) shares the piece Scaling a Program that Stops Diabetes in its Tracks about how it’s using the innovative Pay for Success model in Michigan to broaden the reach of the Diabetes Prevention Program, which has a national track record for reducing the onset of disease and its debilitating impact on low-income communities of color.
