On November 12 and 13, 2013, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Peers for Progress of the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation hosted a meeting of leaders in health care and in peer support programs to discuss current strengths and needs in the field. This discussion would then guide 2014 activities of the National Peer Support Collaborative Learning Network, a joint activity of NCLR and Peers for Progress, supported by the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation’s initiative, Together on Diabetes. The discussions from this meeting identified features of peer support that point to an expanded, scalable approach to its broad dissemination.
