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

ir, UAB Department of Family and Community Medicine.

Cities for Life will define specific metrics to determine the success of the project. A formal evaluation by the NRN will look carefully at all aspects of this pilot project, including:

  • A thorough process evaluation in order to understand the development and implementation of the program model at the practice and community level, culminating with recommendations for dissemination of the model in other cities.
  • Patient metrics around diabetes management and prevention including clinical outcomes, self-efficacy and self-management, and interviews regarding the patient navigation process.

In addition, changes will be assessed at the community level such as general awareness about the program.

Cities for Life stems from the AAFP Foundation's Behavioral Economics Roundtable on Diabetes Summary Report, which urged communities to develop comprehensive programs for better diabetes management. To drive improved community health through behavioral economics, the program will link people from primary care to community support by creating partnerships with community organizations which could benefit people living with diabetes and those at risk for diabetes. In addition, once these community partners are fully engaged, a sustainable way to incentivize patients for healthy behavior change will be explored, such as rewarding patients who log five miles a week walking or running with a reward (e.g., vouchers for free meals at local restaurants, free fitness class).

"Sanofi US is excited to support the Cities for Life project. With the AAFP Foundation's leadership, at program conclusion we will have a better roadmap for how communities can work with family
