Randomized Trial of Peer Led Education-Project Dulce
Peer-Led Diabetes Education Programs in High Risk Mexican Americans Evaluates Glycemic Control Compared to Standard Approaches: A Project Dulce™ Promotora Randomized Trial

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of a culturally sensitive diabetes self-management program on glucose control and metabolic parameters in low income Mexican-Americans with type 2 diabetes using the Project Dulce model utilizing a low cost, peer-educator format.

To recruit 207 Mexican-Americans patients from federally-funded community health centers in San Diego County with Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) > 8% and randomize to Project Dulce peer intervention or continuation of standard diabetes care. The primary outcome will be the percent change in HbA1c levels at 10 months following randomization.
