LINC TELACU – Diabetes Fighters

HMA developed and illustrated Lalo y Lupita, Los Luchadores (The Diabetes Fighters), a comic book that educates tweens and parents in the East Los Angeles School System. The comic made it fun and comfortable for educators to discuss Hispanics’ cultural misconceptions about diabetes. A pre-test and post-test revealed that after the release of these materials, knowledge increased 18 percent among elementary-school students, 12 percent among middle-school students, and 11 percent among parents.
