The Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) has designed the Better Self-Management of Diabetes Priority Area Grant (PAG) to support the implementation and expansion of the nationally recognized Chronic Care Model ( developed for the management of chronic illness at the primary care level. MFH is focusing on the self-management component of the model and its application to improving diabetes care and targets populations of individuals diagnosed with Type II diabetes, particularly those from high-risk, low-income, uninsured, underinsured, or underserved populations.

The intent of this PAG is to demonstrate that collaborative, multi-component, self-management diabetes programs can be delivered in a variety of health care and community settings. The Foundation’s goals for this PAG are to support organizations that:

  • Improve outcomes through evidenced-based interventions
  • Integrate self-management support
  • Leverage resources that improve patient care through collaborations and partnerships
  • Develop replicable models for the treatment of chronic illnesses

Because the UM System is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Thursday, April 12, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary of the proposed project, including brief overviews of 1) the rationale for the program and activities planned; 2) description and size of the target population, its unique barriers to diabetes self-management, and plans to overcome those barriers; and 3) anticipated results of the project.
