The Healthy Changes project seeks to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities for Cambodian and Latino families in Santa Ana, Calif. It intends to establish a community-based partnership network, which will provide an integrated continuum of preventive, medical and social support services to the target population. This project will focus on health outcomes and social determinants related to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The project will partner with St. Joseph Hospital of Orange, AltaMed (a federally qualified health center), Jamboree Housing with Heart, the Orange County Health Care Agency and others to address diabetes and cardiovascular disease at the individual, community, and systems levels. Cambodian Family and partners will provide health education and case management for individuals, conduct community assessment and hold community workshops to raise awareness and mobilize the community. At the systems level it will develop an inter-agency communication system and conduct partner trainings on evidence-based programs as well as cultural and linguistic practices. Intended outcomes include improving diabetes and cardiovascular disease health outcomes, improving knowledge of health risks and disease prevention in the Cambodian and Latino communities and increasing access to and use of health care services. In order to determine if such outcomes are reached, data will be collected on a range of performance measures, including the number of individuals adhering to treatment regimens and number of individuals utilizing health services.
