[Research Presentation] The growing number of uninsured residents in the Mississippi Delta has created a need for innovative new ways to finance diabetes care. Not only has this issue been impacted by increasing numbers of elderly residents, but also by the growing Hispanic population in the area. The Diabetes Foundation, a non-profit organization, coordinated several community events and raised money through donations to create a voucher program to facilitate monitoring and treatment of diabetes. A non-profit clinic was the key gatekeeper in determining needs of the underserved population. To qualify for the voucher program, the patient with diabetes must show financial need. The focus of the study was to identify the cause of diabetic noncompliance with monitoring and treatment. The research question was as follows:á Are patients labeled noncompliant with diabetes treatment when the issue, in fact, is economical?
