Impact of Type 2 Diabetes Peer Counseling on Behavioral, Metabolic, and Health Outcomes Among Latinos
Impact of Type 2 Diabetes Peer Counseling on Behavioral, Metabolic, and Health Outcomes Among Latinos

The objectives of this study are:

  • To develop a comprehensive culturally tailored model of diabetes management that integrates the work of community-based peer counselors and clinical specialists into a multi-disciplinary health care team serving the Latino community.
  • To implement an intervention that provides education and support to Latino adults diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in both clinical and home settings.
  • To evaluate this intervention for its impact on program adherence, and improved outcomes sustained over time as reflected by metabolic, clinical, cognitive and behavioral measures.

A randomized two group longitudinal design with clinical measurements and behavioral assessments collected at baseline, 3,6,12 and 18 months will be used. It is hypothesized that participants in the home-based peer-counseling intervention will have greater reductions and will better maintain their reductions in their HbA1c levels compared to participants in the standard of care hospital based program currently in place. Additional secondary hypotheses state the participants in the home-based peer-counseling intervention will have improved lipid profile values, cholesterol levels, and BMI compared to participants in the standard of care hospital based program.

Participants in the home-based peer-counseling intervention will monitor their glucose more regularly (defined by the mean and variance in number of monitored days per month) than participants in the standard of care hospital based program. Lastly, participants in the home-based peer-counseling intervention will have a higher rate of program participation (defined by adherence to appointments and referrals) and completion than participants in the standard of care hospital based program.
