HCIF currently serves as a local partner supporting Cities Changing Diabetes – Philadelphia. Cities Changing Diabetes is a global program which helps communities understand their unique diabetes challenges, identify areas and populations at greatest risk, and design and implement targeted solutions.
Cities Changing Diabetes – Philadelphia recently entered its Action Phase, launching an Innovation Challenge using an online platform where stakeholders develop and submit ideas for improving diabetes prevention and management. We are seeking graduate level students in public health or other health professions to support Action Work Groups in developing ideas into full proposals, and moving top proposals into implementation. This opportunity is ideal for students with interests in program planning, chronic disease management and prevention, community health, and multi-stakeholder collaboration.
