Screening for diabetes opened up the door for follow-up with diabetic patients. In 2015 we started ProCED (a Program for the Care and Education of Diabetics), a play on the Spanish word proceder, meaning “to proceed.” It’s the natural next step and a key piece of holistic wellbeing for people suffering from diabetes.
We train patients to manage their disease
Each patient receives a Diabetes and Health workbook that we train them to work through. There they can record their blood-sugar readings, keep track of recommended check-ups and labs, and organize suggestions from specialists in nutrition, foot care, mental health, and more. We don’t remove the need to see Peruvian health professionals.
We empower the patient to know which health professionals to see
