DEEP™ Overview Heading link
DEEP™ is a diabetes self-management program that has been shown to be successful in helping participants take control of their disease and reduce the risk of complications. DEEP™ was developed for use in low-income, racial and ethnic minority populations. It includes a training-of-trainers curriculum designed to engage community residents.
Our Senior Trainer and Lead Trainer workshops prepare professional and community health care workers to effectively train others in DEEP™. Our Peer Educator workshop trains community health workers to use DEEP™ with persons with diabetes in clinical and community-based settings. Qualifications to be a DEEP™ trainer vary.
