Midwest Latino Health Research, Training and Policy Center

The Center’s DEEP™ program 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 low-income, racial and ethnic minority populations. It includes a training-of-trainers curriculum designed to teach healthcare professionals and paraprofessionals to engage community residents.

Effective July 1, 2021 administration of the Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP™) has moved to the University of Illinois Chicago’s Office of Technology Management.
