With diabetes at an epidemic level in the United States, more awareness needs to be brought surrounding prediabetes and diabetes prevention. This DNP Project consists of implementing a faith-based educational informational event at a local rural church to increase diabetes awareness. Findings within this DNP project suggest that the rural population can increase knowledge of diabetes awareness through faith-based education. With a sample size of 21 participants, positive statistical significance was found on analysis of pre-test and post-test Likert style questions regarding diabetes prevention, risk factors, and diabetic resources.
