3G Wireless Technology Empowers Patients to Take Control of Their Health Through the Dulce Wireless Tijuana Project

back to the community by helping our customers gain better access to health care services."

"This project is very important for UABC because it fulfills our objectives of teaching, research and service and community outreach," said Dr. Sara Cortes, dean of the faculty of medicine and psychology at UABC.  "The knowledge generated through this exciting project will enable strategies for a comprehensive approach to diabetes."

"The Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute has background and expertise in training and developing peer educators so they can deliver a clear, understandable message that improves diabetes care for people in the community with the disease.  In Dulce Wireless Tijuana, we used our training expertise to train peer educators south of the border in order to implement programs similar to those we conduct with Project Dulce here in San Diego," said Dr. Athena Philis-Tsimikas, vice president of the SWDI.  "Diabetes is exceedingly prevalent along the border region so it makes perfect sense for us, if we are going to treat the disease, to treat it in similar ways across both sides of the border."

"Fronteras Unidas PRO SALUD is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing high-quality, low-cost health care to marginalized communities in Tijuana," said Marcela Merino, director general of Fronteras Unidas PRO SALUD.  "One of the greatest issues that these communities face is that because of distance, public transportation challenges and lack of time, it is extremely difficult to visit doctors and nurses.  With this project, patients are now connected to their health care providers, including promotoras, wirelessly via their mobile devices, which will enable them to obtain care they could not receive in the past and help them to live healthier lives."

As part of the project, Dulce Wireless Tijuana patients will have access to the system and technology including primary care services and disease managemen
