d104>Donna Zazworsky, MS, RN, CCM, FAAN, is an internationally known expert in case management and disease management with community populations. She is managing partner for Case Manager Solutions, LLC, and director of Grants, Partnerships and Policy for St. Elizabeth of Hungary Community Health Center---a large clinic that serves more than 18,000 uninsured in Tucson and the surrounding communities. On a personal note, Donna’s mother and two maternal aunts have experienced the devastating complications of Type 2 Diabetes. Six years ago, her mother suffered a stroke that has left her with left sided weakness. Both aunts died of diabetes complications related to above the knee bilateral amputations and end stage renal disease. Not only is diabetes prevention a personal motivation for Donna, but case management and disease management systems provide a primary focus for her work in understanding and reducing barriers for people with diabetes. Jane Nelson Bolin, RN, JD, PhD, is a professor and researcher in rural health and disease management at Texas A&M. On a personal note, Jane has had gestational diabetes during both of her pregnancies. Knowing that the incidence of getting Type 2 diabetes at a later age is more than 70%, Jane practices a personal prevention program that includes diet and exercise. Vicki Gaubeca, MPH, is assistant director of Public Affairs and Community Outreach for the Mel and Enid Zuckerman Arizona College of Public Health. On a personal note, Vicki has had Type 1 Diabetes since she was a teenager. She knows the day-to-day struggles of self management and hopes that this handbook will lend insight to the public health workers who help people with diabetes.
