Who We Are

The Diabetes Community Action Coalition (DCAC) is a diverse group of  community members, health advocates, health care providers, and community-based organizations that work together to prevent diabetes and its complications.  Established in March of 2011 as a chapter of the Georgia Diabetes Coalition, the DCAC has grown to include over 300 community members and 90 partner organizations.  In 2014, DCAC incorporated as a non-profit organization and expanded to include both Fulton and DeKalb counties.

 

DCAC conducts community outreach programs and provides training to health advocates, community health workers, schools, social service organizations, and health care professionals.

 

DCAC has an active alliance with the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) and works in partnership with the Georgia Department of Public Healths Diabetes Prevention and Control Program.  DCAC is a member of the Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement.  DCAC has been designated a Champion for Coverage by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
