Lindsay Diabetes Project

The Lindsay Diabetes Project is a collaborative effort through Healthy Kids-Healthy Lindsay and a number of stakeholders that includes health care providers, community based organizations, and community members. The project is funded through the Lindsay Hospital Board and the mission is to optimize the health of Lindsay residents affected by diabetes through a comprehensive, culturally sensitive, family centered approach. This approach includes providing a 6 week educational series based on the Project Dulce curriculum conducted by bicultural/bilingual Promotoras, linking them to health/social services, physical activity opportunities and providing ongoing support through monthly support groups. In addition to this participants will have the opportunity to work with a Pharmacist to review their medications. The educational series are very interactive and the topics are as follows:

  • Getting to Know Your Diabetes
  • Healthy Eating
  • Healthy Eating Continued
  • Coping With Stress/Physical Activity
  • Medication Management
  • Staying Healthy With Diabetes
  • Evaluation/Celebration

** This program is for Lindsay, CA residents only. **

The Lindsay Diabetes Support Group takes place the second Thursday of the month 5:30 – 7:00PM. Both the educational sessions and the support groups take place at: 

Healthy Start Family Resource Center
