Diabetes Assessment at Hillside Healthcare International Clinic

Hillside Healthcare International Clinic is a non-profit organization that provides free medical care, home care, physical therapy and pharmacy services to the Toledo District in Southern Belize. Diabetes is a leading cause of death in Belize, due in part to lack of access to nutritional food sources, education and timely and accurate diagnosis. This project aims to improve the longitudinal care of patients diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus by increasing the screening and surveillance capabilities at Hillside with a point-of-care (POC) Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) device and increasing community knowledge of diabetes and treatment. Student and resident volunteers from Northwestern and other universities rotating at Hillside will contribute to and implement this program via enhanced diagnostic capability, counseling of patients in clinic and community outreach initiatives.
