SDCCU has once again partnered with Scripps Health Foundation to sponsor the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute’s (SWDI) Project Dulce—a diabetes care and education program that addresses the specific needs of diabetes patients in the greater San Diego area.
This is the second year in a row that SDCCU’s support will allow Project Dulce to deliver a series of courses and educational resources that instruct and engage patients in preventing, managing and avoiding complications related to diabetes to help improve their lives. The partnership support will also allow SWDI to provide a minimum of 125 diabetes screenings, education and referrals at community events.
“As a longtime partner of Scripps Health Foundation, SDCCU is proud to sponsor this much needed community program that benefits thousands of diabetes patients throughout the county who are suffering from this disease,” said Teresa Halleck, president and CEO of SDCCU. “SDCCU is an engaged community partner and our philanthropic activities are aimed at promoting a vibrant, healthy and sustainable community. We are grateful for the good work Project Dulce is doing to achieve this aim.”
Project Dulce, initiated over 17 years ago, was designed by a broad collaboration of San Diego health care and community-based organizations. To date, the program has managed thousands of patients at Project Dulce program locations in San Diego.
