The COVID-19 pandemic posed a burden on patients managing type 2 diabetes. The purpose of this project was to evaluate the impact of remote interventions (telehealth, medication delivery, and self monitoring devices) at a free clinic . A1c data was recorded to determine if there was a change in values from the beginning of the pandemic to vaccine availability upon clinic re-opening. Results show average pre-A1c of 7.6 and post-A1c of 8.2 (p-value = 0.0391). Of pre-A1Cs, 40% were <7% and 23% were >9%. Of post-A1Cs, 35% were <7% and 30% >9%. The A1c increased from pre to post overall and the percentage with controlled A1C was not maintained. The findings revealed that the mitigation strategies allowed the clinic to work with patients to minimize but not eliminate the burden of the pandemic on diabetes management.
