Abstract

Diabetes educators are challenged to develop culturally appropriate, integrated, behaviorally based, effective education programs. This article describes the intervention used in a problem-based educational program for urban African Americans with diabetes. The intervention consisted of six 2-hour, weekly group educational and data collection sessions. No lectures were used, and the content was determined by participants' questions and concerns. Culturally tailored written educational materials were also provided.
