Deming, New Mexico Diabetes Education

In collaboration with the Department of Health in Las Cruces New Mexico ... the HOPE mobile unit was in Deming last week to deliver the third and final diabetes education class to our eager class of participants. The class was delivered by Romi Means, Licensed Diabetes Educator from the New Mexico Department of Health in Las Cruces and facilitated by Trudy Gallegos of Project HOPE New Mexico.

While the class was in session… Jennie Concha (from our Albuquerque Office)was hosting our guests from the University of New Mexico and a Chinese delegation at our Albuquerque office. With video and audio setup through our Skype accounts, the team in Albuquerque were able to observe the training class in Deming live as it was being delivered. The Chinese delegation commented on how they really liked our setup and delivery. They said it was amazing.

Joe McClintock, Health Council Coordinator from the Luna County Health Council in Deming commented on how beneficial this type of education has been to his community. "This much needed diabetes education has been very effective because of the non-conventional way we deliver the message," he says. We are getting education that we normally do not get from our local practitioners.”
