National Diabetes Education Program
The National Diabetes Education Program’s (NDEP) monograph, "Silent Trauma:
Diabetes, Health Status, and
the Refugee Experience Among Southeast Asians in the United States" was developed to shed light on
the unique chronic health conditions and issues related to access to and quality of health care
among Southeast Asians. With a better understanding of these challenges and opportunities,
public health administrators and policymakers can improve diabetes education and outreach to
these communities and work toward implementing better health care systems to improve health
care access and quality.
