The Center for Southeast Asians (CSEA) is partnering with Khmer Health Advocate in West Hartford, CT and the University of Connecticut Health in Farmington, CT on a 5 years research grant from the National Institute of Health, designed to study innovative strategies to prevent diabetes among Cambodian Americans.
CSEA has a long history of collaborating on health issues promotion. CSEA will employ our community health workers to deliver the lifestyle intervention (Eat, Walk, Sleep) and to facilitate the medication therapy management intervention via telemedicine. CSEA is elated by this opportunity to collaborate on this important study which has the potential to dramatically improve the health of the Cambodian American community.
1. Type 2 diabetes is highly prevalent among Cambodian Americans. 3 in 10 have diabetes; an additional 2 in 10 are at risk for diabetes. this means that in total 1/2 of all Cambodian Americans are affected by diabetes.
2. They have higher risk because of genetic predisposition, and also because of their high rates of depression and post traumatic stress disorder. Both mental health conditions increase the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes. Additionally, the medications used to treat these mental health problems increase risk for diabetes.
3. There are many studies showing that diabetes can prevented or delayed with lifestyle modification. The DREAM study is comparing 3 non-pharmacological treatments among Cambodian Americans with depression and high risk for diabetes. It compares: a) culturally relevant lifestyle modifications led by bilingual, bicultural community health workers (CHWs); b) culturally relevant lifestyle modification led by CHWs PLUS meetings with CHW translators and pharmacists to discuss medications problems; c) referrals to social services that could address the social determinants of health. Outcomes of the study include biological markers of diabetes risk, lifestyle behaviors (nutrition, physical activity, and sleeping), and mental health.
