Urteaga, Edie
Online Submission, Master's Thesis, Dominican University of California
Adult onset, type2 diabetes affects Latino families at a higher rate than other ethnicities and negatively impacting their quality of life, ability to financially succeed, and ultimately impacting our overall economy. Multiple resources are available in the country to help people learn how to prevent, control, and manage diabetes. However, the need exists for creative ways to empower Latino families in diabetes self-management and increase their awareness and understanding of the nuts and bolts of this illness. One specific segment of Latino families of major concern is those who may have remote or no access to health care due to their work in intense manual labor industries such as winery fields, dairies and others. This research uses a case study methodology to examine curriculum, Field of Dreams, as a model to empower this segment of our population, adult Latinos, working in such environments, in type2 diabetes self-management
