Description

Over the past couple of months I have had the opportunity to observe and to aid in translation for Hispanic patients at the Community Health Care Clinic in Bloomington, IL. During my time at the community clinic, cases of diabetes have arisen frequently and have led to this inquiry into the context of diabetes within the Hispanic population. The positive and negative characters of a traditional Hispanic diet will be discussed, as well as the health implications this has for a diabetic patient. Other challenges within the Hispanic population that relate to diabetes self-management will be addressed as well. Lastly, the presentation will discuss methods that can be utilized to help Hispanics better manage their diabetes while keeping in mind a cultural sensitivity that works alongside the current diet and stresses small changes. Esta presentación bilingüe será en inglés y en español.
