The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that Hispanics are among the racial and ethnic minorities who are at greatest risk for developing diabetes and its complications (CDC, 2011). Diabetes education is key to helping Hispanic adults with diabetes type 2 self manage the disease (CDC, 2011). At the site for this capstone, a busy clinic in the small rural community of Beeville, Texas, there is not only the lack of an outpatient diabetes education class but also lack of cultural sensitivity to the Hispanic population served. One way to close this gap is to bring culturally sensitive education to the clinic. Therefore, the purpose of this Doctorate Capstone Project is to provide the Hispanic adults with type 2 diabetes at Calica Family Medical clinic in Beeville, Texas the opportunity to attend a diabetes class that meets the cultural needs of that population. Participants attending the culturally contextualized diabetes nutritional series will experience enhanced knowledge of calorie and carbohydrate counting; they will learn to make adjustments to food choices and meal planning; and they will apply their knowledge of food combination through meal preparation. They will learn to apply the American Diabetes Association (ADA) guidelines within the cultural framework of the South Texas Hispanic dietary customs.
