May Newsletter Focuses on Peer Support and Primary Care
Peer support programs can strengthen primary care practice and community health, reaching vulnerable populations and reducing health disparities. Through the work of promotores, it can even address the social determinants of health. In this issue of the Peers for Progress newsletter, we spotlight a peer health coaching program in a primary care setting that has helped low-income, minority patients manage their diabetes. You will also find program resources and research briefs about the impact of peer support on disadvantaged populations.
