Meet Your New DipIN Neighborhood Community Health Workers, by Ron Rice
DipIn (Diabetes Impact Project-Indianapolis) has been making waves these last 6
years in creating programs and events accessible to the community to
change the way we approach health.
From Hip Hop classes to boot camps, community dinners to bike riding, the list goes on and on. All decisions are RESIDENT driven and RESIDENT chosen! Supported by the Fairbanks School of Public Health. Our mission is to find ways to connect the resources, programs, and
information to keep folks healthier, and we have brand new Community Health
Workers (C.H.W.s) to assist us in those goals.
