The Health Information Gateway: Diabetes
The Health Information Gateway: Diabetes (“the Gateway”), is an online diabetes information database for physicians, advocates, health educators, patients and their families who need high quality materials in a variety of Asian and Pacific Islander languages. Diabetes, which can lead to heart disease, stroke, blindness and amputation, is currently the fifth leading cause of death among Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders (AA & NHOPIs) and a major health disparity issue.
Centralized Information: Easy Access, Anywhere
“Until now, there’s really been no single place online where people could find the diabetes health information they needed and in the language they needed it in—information gathering was generally time consuming and scattered,” said Jeff Caballero, executive director of AAPCHO. “We’re thus extremely proud that The Gateway addresses this problem and does it by involving community members, diabetes patients, and health experts to contribute and collaboratively enrich the materials with their own insights, all in a centralized location.”
