Counseling and Support for Latinos with Diabetes and Their Families: A Grant-Writing Project
by Moreno, Monica, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2020, 57; 27829936
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant for a program aimed at helping low-income Latinos manage their diabetes. Participants would engage in an education-support group, culturally sensitive cooking classes, and exercise classes. After program completion, participants are expected to have lower A1C levels, feel more connected to others, and feel more confident in managing their diabetes.

The host agency for this program would be a community health clinic in the southeast Los Angeles area. The agency serves a large number of low-income Latinos, many of whom struggle with diabetes management. The potential funding source was the CDC’s Partnership to Improve Community Health (PICH) initiative.

If funded, this program would help address the barriers to care faced by low-income Latinos while managing a chronic health condition. The program would help create a healthier and happier community by providing education and services to an often overlooked population.
