Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute (DHWI) at Juanita J. Craft Recreation Center is the cornerstone of Baylor’s Southern Sector Health Initiative, created in 2006, to address the region’s health care needs relative to diabetes. The center works to weave diabetes prevention into the fabric of the com​​munity, so it is a natural and convenient part of life in this neighborhood. DHWI is conveniently located near the Fair Park DART line.

DHWI is built on four fundamental principles, which include: collaborative financial support and governance; integration of social, cultural, political, and economic initiatives; clinical care in the neighborhood; and community-based, multidisciplinary research.​
