Nursing – health, epidemiology & stats NR503. The original question stated ” identify a local prevention or screening program tied specifically to diabetes and provide a brief overview of the program “. I chose a local program here in Mid-Michigan that was started in April 2015 called the MiHIA created by the CDC & NIH that includes 14 area counties. The program was instituted to keep the population healthy by doing screenings for chronic diseases. ( diabetes being one ). It’s a 16 wk program that has a specially trained instructor that teach lifestyle practices that prevent diabetes. Follow ups are also included. NEW QUESTION: would you make any changes to this program… Why or why not?
