Applying New Diabetes Teaching Tools in Health-Related Extension Programming
Grenci, Alexandra
Journal of Extension, v48 n1 Article 1IAW5 Feb 2010
In response to the emerging global diabetes epidemic, health educators are searching for new and better education tools to help people make positive behavior changes to successfully prevent or manage diabetes. Conversation Maps[R] are new learner-driven education tools that have been developed to empower individuals to improve their health outcomes. While the tools were originally developed for clinical settings, this article describes a model Extension health outreach program that uses Conversation Map techniques to teach diabetes awareness and healthy eating in community group settings. These techniques can be used as a model for teaching other health topics to adult learners. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
