Latest Activity: Jun 29

Welcome to the NDEP H/L Stakeholder Group

Join peers, thought leaders, and subject matter experts as together we discuss the diabetes related issues affecting the Hispanic Latino population! Your participation is greatly appreciated as we seek to strengthen the expertise in the field of diabetes prevention and control.

The Hispanic/Latino Stakeholder Group participants recognize the differences among Spanish-speaking cultures as an important aspect for diabetes awareness, management and education. Therefore, this group will work together to develop a shared repertoire of resources: experiences, success stories reaching this segment, tools and resources that appeal Hispanic/Latinos, and ways of addressing issues that pertain to this diverse group. This Community of Practice will provide a place where people can share a common interest, exchange information, ask questions, express their opinion and collaborate with NDEP to identify solutions related to addressing the health communication and health promotion needs of the Hispanic/Latino community.

Saludos Leonardo Perez, soy estudiante de Salud Pública de la Escuela de Medicina San Juan Bautista me interesa mucho la campaña educativa para noviembre Mes de la Diabetes. Entiendo que es una iniciativa que se puede trabajar creando una alianza entre los estudiantes de salud pública de las diferentes escuelas más los profesionales de la salud. Como parte de la Sociedad Estudiantil de Salud Pública estamos dispuestos a colaborar, en la medida que sea posible, en la campaña educativa.
