Community Action Resource Kit

RACE to help others in your community defeat diabetes!


Perhaps you or a loved one has been diagnosed with diabetes. More than 337,000 Missouri adults have diabetes, which is a serious and chronic disease. Even more are at risk to get diabetes.

The good news is that you can take action to help the people in your community who might have diabetes or who are likely to get diabetes.

This Community Action Resource Kit will make it easier for your RACE to help your community defeat diabetes through Research, an Action Plan, Carrying Out the Plan, and Evaluation (RACE).

Finally, we will ask you to share. Ask us questions. Tell us how helpful this Community Action Resource Kit was for you. And share with us success stories and lessons learned about your community interventions!

quick note

A quick note:  The steps in the RACE format for community action are a guide for you and your team. The amount of time you might spend on each step will differ based on your team and situation. You might do each step in order or do some steps at the same time.
