The LiveWell Diabetes Program has started to develop the building blocks of a logic model to provide information for our community on our vision, mission, values, framework, including information on our teams and the programs and services provided.

Included in this information is an overarching logic model on Diabetes Prevention and Management for SHR and an environmental scan of existing programs and services.
