Projects

Introduction

SNPhA is dedicated to serving our communities needs. Community projects are uniquely designed projects that may go beyond our current initiative goals and may be completed throughout the year. They could include collaborative health fairs, “Brown Bag” service and education, raising money for charity or a number of other ideas that can serve the underserved in our communities. Chapters will be awarded points based on project participation.

Chapter Achievement Partners (CAPS)

The CAPs program is designed to allow SNPhA chapters to collaborate on projects, share information, and increase communication by providing a medium to establish and strengthen networks.  It is in the best interest of each chapter to communicate and assist each other in achieving their particular goals and objectives for the year. Each chapter should take advantage of this program to strengthen, share, and network with their colleagues.

Diabetes Initiative

The prevalence of diabetes is increasing among adults and children in the United States. As of 2011, 25.8 million people (8.3% of the population) in the U.S. have diabetes, and an estimated 79 million people have prediabetes. Because diabetes remains largely undiagnosed (7.0 million people) and prevalent among our underrepresented populations, SNPhA actively educates patients on lifestyle changes, medication therapy, self care, and appropriate monitoring. Chapters are awarded CIC points based on health screenings, community outreach, and patient education. Resources and event calendars are available at www.diabetes.org and www.worlddiabetesday.org.
