Each year the Diabetes Coalition generates a data analysis report containing demographic and geospatial data that is made available to members, partners, and the public to be used in their prevention, health care intervention, and educational outreach efforts.
In 2016, the Diabetes Coalition entered into a partnership with Keiser University to facilitate and implement strategies for diabetes risk assessment screening data input and analyses.

We would like to thank Barbara Jacobowitz, MS, Health Services Administration Program Chair, Keiser University; Vice Chair, Board of Directors, and Chair of the Data Resources Committee, and Ron Fuerst, MS, Keiser University, for their work in completing in-depth reviews and analyses of the Coalition’s diabetes screening data. The key findings of their work are outlined in the “Diabetes Coalition of Palm Beach County: A Review and Analysis of Screening Data from 2012 through 2016 – What Did We Learn?”

If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please email Ms. Jacobowitz at: bjacobowitz@keiseruniversity.edu
