St. Thomas Health Services Fund is rooted in the loving ministry of Jesus as healer. STHS is committed to serving all persons, with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable. Patient services and support programs are designed to be culturally competent and offer superior care for patients and families. The grant is to help improve the health status of 50 medically underserved Latinos with diabetes in Davidson County over a one year time period. Participants will have a HgbA1C of 7% or more. Participants will receive nutritional information, access to physical activity opportunities, adherence training for proper medication therapy and will be evaluated for barriers to proper self care (i.e., non-compliance with nutrition plan, exercise plan or medication therapy) and help to identify workable solutions.
