3/16/12 - Sansum Diabetes Research Institute Receives $50,000 March of Dimes Grant for Seeds of Change Project
> VIEW   
> HIDE  
Sansum Diabetes Research Institute has received $50,000 from the California Chapter of the March of Dimes for year one of a three-year project. The award funds the Semillas del Cambio (Seeds of Change) Project, an interconception care program for women with diabetes.
Program participants will be chosen from a group of Santa Barbara County women who had gestational diabetes during their last pregnancy. A Spanish-language training toolkit will be developed that includes lesson plans, handouts, and teaching props for a six-session series. Lessons will focus on glucose control, healthy weight, blood pressure goals, breastfeeding benefits, physical activity, and the importance of zero-calorie drinks over sugary beverages. A strong emphasis will be placed on incorporating life-style changes.
Training will initially be taught by Sansum Diabetes staff. Graduates of the class will become Promatoras (peer heath advocates), who will in turn lead classes that will empower women who have had gestational diabetes to take charge of their health and prepare for their next pregnancy. The goal is for the classes to be completely Promatora-led and self-sustaining, as graduates train others and spread the reach of the program to an ever-widening audience.
Seeds of Change will primarily address the needs of low-income, medically-underserved, women with or at risk for diabetes who lack access to medical care and health education. The goal of this program is to impact the lives of these women and for many future generations in a low-cost, peer-led, self-sustaining manner.
Sansum Diabetes Research Institute is a research institute devoted to the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes.
March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies®, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
