The Cancer Research Collaboration Partners With Diabetes Prevention Program Provider Blue Mesa Health with California Residents in Mind

The Cancer Research Collaboration (CRC), a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding the availability of cutting-edge cancer research, which is a division of RadNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RDNT), a national market leader providing high-quality, cost-effective diagnostic imaging services through a network of fully-owned and operated outpatient imaging centers, are, once again, proud to work in conjunction with Blue Mesa Health’s (“Blue Mesa”) Transform diabetes prevention program.

Since 2016, Blue Mesa’s CDC-recognized diabetes prevention programs Transform and Transformemos have been helping stem the tide of rising chronic disease-related health costs — a situation where approximately one-third of Americans is prediabetic. The programs are based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) landmark National Diabetes Prevention Program . Transform and Transformemos combine software, home health monitoring via wireless scales, activity trackers, and remote health coaching to guide participants through a twelve-month lifestyle change program.

Since joining forces earlier this year to deliver the program to patients in New York, CRC, RadNet and Blue Mesa have decided to expand their collaboration to California patients. Similar to NY, the Transform program will be provided to California CRC patients who are at risk or are cancer survivors and meet the program criteria. The goal is for participants to lose approximately 5-7% of their body weight and add 150 minutes of moderate physical activity over 52 weeks, which is correlated with a 58% reduction in risk for type 2 diabetes. These are important goals for at-risk patients and breast cancer survivors. Maintaining a healthy BMI can reduce the risk of developing breast cancer and chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes.

Blue Mesa Health Reconoce la importancia de mantener una Vida Saludable durante el Mes Cultural Hispano

Septiembre es el mes cultural Hispano y por ello el tiempo perfecto para reconocer y celebrar a los ciudadanos estadounidenses con raíces Latinas e Hispanas, así como a la creciente influencia que tienen ellos en la cultura y salud Americanas. No es secreto que la comida, la familia y la comunidad constituyen la columna vertebral de las culturas Hispana y Latina. En Blue Mesa estamos contribuyendo para ayudar a la comunidad a vivir una vida saludable y por ello, gustosamente  impartimos, junto a nuestro socio Solera Health, el Seminario Educativo “Aplicando Salud a Nuestras Raices Latinas” cuyo fin es ayudar a las familias a tomar decisiones saludables con respecto a su alimentación y estilo de vida.

En Blue Mesa Health es nuestro máximo interés ayudar a las comunidades a vivir una vida saludable y a comer platillos nutritivos que enriquezcan raíces culturales. El seminario demuestra cómo pequeños cambios en la vida cotidiana pueden ser convenientes y positivos con el uso de ingredientes y sabores tradicionales! Unos de los mensajes importantes del seminario incluyen:

  • Aprendiendo cómo la cultura latina e Hispana pueden influenciar la salud de manera positiva, aprovechando una gran variedad de platillos Latinos e Hispanos que incluyen verduras y frutas frescas

  • Entendiendo como disfrutar platillos tradicionales de una manera saludable reemplazando harina, azúcar refinada y comidas fritas, con ingredientes frescos encontrados en los famosos mercados

  • Manteniendo un estilo de vida activo que puede ser compartido con la familia, un importante pilar en la cultura Hispana y Latina

  • Introduciendo Transformemos: un Programa Digital de Prevención de Diabetes, enfocado en la cultura y cocina Hispana y Latina

Los comentarios emitidos por los participantes demuestran que Transformemos y sus coaches han sido bien recibidos. Por ejemplo, un participante nos comenta:

Transformemos ha sido un programa, que a través de apoyo constante y experiencia (de Mónica), me ha enseñado que puedo alcanzar metas… me (a) ayudado a reprogramar mi pensamiento de una forma… fácil. Nunca creí posible, que un par de meses después de haber comenzado…45 libras menos del peso inicial y llena de energía…estaría escribiendo esta carta de agradecimiento…

Blue Mesa Health es una compañía basada en Estados Unidos la cual ofrece Transformemos: un programa disponible virtualmente de prevención de diabetes que está diseñado con la comunidad Hispana en mente. El programa está basado en estudios de el CDC (Centros para el control y la prevención de enfermedades). Transformemos esta guiado por coaches especializados y compasivos, como Monica. Ella es nativa de Colombia y es nutricionista licenciada y certificada como entrenadora de la salud en el estado de Florida. Ella está, en el presente, estudiando un Doctorado en medicina funcional y aporta su gran experiencia, obtenida de la Clínica Mayo, en la prevención de la diabetes en la población Latina.
