A key component of Cities for Life is the use of a patient navigator to work directly with family medicine practices to help create sustainable linkages between existing community resources and patients with diabetes or at risk for diabetes. The AAFP National Research Network (NRN), the country's largest practice-based research network, will work closely with key community partners to help develop the patient navigation system and guide patients towards appropriate, accessible resources that facilitate a healthy lifestyle and diabetes management outside the exam room. The project will also receive programmatic guidance from the AAFP Foundation's Peers for Progress program.

Cities for Life is designed to be a grassroots program optimizing the collective strength of Birmingham's "medical neighborhood;" i.e., family medicine practices, health-care and education opportunities through UAB and the many community resources that currently facilitate a patient's efforts toward a healthier life. Key partners include:

  • UAB Department of Family and Community Medicine (UAB-DFCM)
  • Several family medicine practices recruited, selected and guided by UAB-DFCM throughout the Cities for Life project
  • UAB's Diabetes Research and Training Center's Community Engagement Core (DRTC-CEC)
  • UAB HealthSmart
  • YMCA of Greater Birmingham

"A major challenge that Cities for Life addresses is the coordination of care among several sources, which can help facilitate improved management of diabetes. By incorporating key elements such as the patient-centered medical home, community leadership and resources, peer support, diabetes self-management education and social marketing into our program, we hope to see real change for the better in our patients diagnosed with diabetes," said Dr. Michael Harrington, cha
