Experimental: Education and Support
online education and support meetings
Behavioral: DSMES Intervention
This study will provide participants with on-line education, plus weekly text messaging that will contain messages of support or encouragement sent to participants in the individual’s preferred language (English or Spanish). Participants will be encouraged to attend monthly group support meetings to review the content and address any questions. Group meetings will occur at 3-time intervals (end of months: 1, 2, and 3). Group support meetings will be held in-person at a food pantry and moderated by peer mentors, nursing students, registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), and/or a diabetes care and education specialist (DCES). Group support meetings will be held in Spanish and/or English, with no more than 10 participants in a group at one time, and will last approximately 50 minutes. For the duration of the study, participants will continue to receive monthly food items from the food pantry.
