An estimated 1.9 million people over twenty years of age were diagnosed with diabetes in the United States last year. Diabetes affects an estimated 25.8 million people of all ages. Just over 18 million cases are diagnosed and seven million cases remain undiagnosed. Hispanics have a 66% greater risk of being diagnosed with diabetes than non-Hispanic whites and are at a greater risk of death from diabetes-related complications. Diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death among Hispanics, and is currently the seventh leading cause of death among non-Hispanic whites. The purpose of this project is to implement and evaluate a culturally sensitive diabetes education program for adult Hispanic clients with type II diabetes who seek health care services at a county health department primary care clinic. Promotores is the Spanish word for health promoters. Based on a review of literature, evidence exists to support extended group educational sessions conducted by promotores for Hispanic diabetic clients that may result in improved diabetes health literacy among this population. This project will focus on Hispanic type II diabetic clients who seek care at a rural health clinic in Arcadia, Florida. Three Hispanic promotores will be trained to conduct culturally sensitive diabetes education classes in group sessions. Three class sessions will focus on general diabetes knowledge, label reading, and meal planning. Participants will complete the Spanish-language Diabetes Knowledge Questionnaire-24 (DKQ-24) and will complete basic label reading and meal plate preparation activities. Participant satisfaction with the promotores-led diabetes education classes and clinic staff perception of improvement in health education for Hispanic diabetic clients will be evaluated at the end of the class sessions.
