Sugar Free with Justin T.: Diabetes Education through Community Partnerships
Thomas, Justin B.; Donaldson, Joseph L.
Journal of Extension, v52 n6 Article 6IAW6 Dec 2014
This article describes the design, development, and delivery of an Extension community cable television program, "Sugar Free with Justin T.," in Roane County, Tennessee. The program targets diabetics, pre-diabetics, and those who care for them, with practical information and demonstrations to improve dietary quality. In addition to television, program videos are posted to the county Extension Facebook page for greater exposure. This innovative approach is the result of extensive Extension and community partnerships, and the article highlights the roles of these varied partners, including the local community college that films, edits, and produces "Sugar Free with Justin T."
