Assessing Diabetes and Factors Associated with Foregoing Medical Care among Persons with Diabetes: Disparities Facing American Indian/Alaska Native, Black, Hispanic, Low Income, and Southern Adults in the U.S. (2011-2015)
International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 14(5):464.
The purpose of this project was to identify individual-
and place-based factors associated with diagnosed
diabetes and foregone medical care among those diagnosed
with diabetes. Diabetes prevalence and foregone medical
care were found to be higher for those with lower
incomes, for several racial/ethnic groups, and in the
South versus other regions.
