American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation Launches Cities for Life
Date:4/24/2012

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation announced the launch of Cities for Life in Birmingham, Ala., a community-based diabetes management program anchored in family medicine. With nearly 26 million people living with diabetes in the U.S. and with one in three Alabamians born after 2000 developing diabetes during their lifetime, Cities for Life, supported by Sanofi US, will work with community groups to create an environment that facilitates healthy lifestyles and diabetes management.[i],[ii] The AAFP Foundation is guiding this grassroots program because family physicians and other primary care professionals provide most of the care for people living with diabetes, and these professionals seek to develop better strategies for effective management of the disease.

"The Cities for Life program provides a standard of care and community support that will help educate people living with diabetes on how to better manage their condition. The AAFP Foundation is committed to driving significant change in the treatment and management of diabetes, and through initiatives such as Cities for Life and the Behavioral Economics Roundtable on Diabetes, the AAFP Foundation is bringing together leaders in primary care, industry experts and local communities to collaboratively address the growing problem of diabetes," said Mary Jo Welker, MD, president, AAFP Foundation.

As Alabama has one of the highest rates of diabetes in the U.S. and is also committed to improving the lives of its citizens, the AAFP Foundation is focusing on the Birmingham communities of Southside, Southwest, Homewood, Titusville and West End for this initiative and will partner with the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), a world
