    Capitalizing on Community: A Critical Discourse on the Neoliberal Management of Diabetes and Inequity by Mulhern, Morgan

    I have taken up the difficult task in this thesis of ethnographically weaving together many strands of theory, practice, and analysis into a coherent narrative about type II diabetes and racial/ethnic disparity to answer the questions: What is the experience like for community health workers for Hispanic and Latina diabetics living in Colorado Springs, CO, and how does their clientele reflect disparate social histories? Further, how can Colorado Springs as a community better understand and strategically address public health efforts? The literature offered in this paper positions a single disease at the intersection of several historical moments and scales of analyses. This work is not meant to be a meta-narrative on the phenomenon, but rather a composite picture of public health framing of type II diabetes at a localized level to prompt collaboration to create an integrated system of health.
