In 1913, at the age of nineteen, Elsie Dunn - later to be known as Evelyn Scott - turned her back on the genteel Southern world she was born into and ran off to Brazil with a married Tulane University dean more than twice her age. Living in tropical exile under assumed names, the couple produced a son and endured a grueling series of hardships and failures that would provide Evelyn Scott with the raw material for a singular work of fictionalized autobiography. That work, published in 1923 amid expressions of mingled outrage and admiration from the critical establishment, was Escapade

Effects of cultural nutritional education among Hispanic women with diabetes by Evelyn Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: The purpose of this project was to educate Hispanic women with diabetes ages 20-50 in utilizing and integrating culturally specific foods that are also beneficial in helping them gain effective glycemic control into their cooking practice. It was hoped that information given helped female Hispanics to be more knowledgeable about healthy eating habits and utilize this knowledge in their every day practice as they attempt to control their glucose levels and thus help them prevent complications from this disease. Diabetes education and inclusion of cultural foods, is a key in controlling diabetes and preventing diabetes complication. The key concepts of education with Latinos: educating the main person that cooks for the family, educating females to make changes in the overall diet not only of the diabetic person, but also of the whole family. According to Whittemore, with a nutritional education, Hispanic populations had increased their ability to control their blood sugar levels as well as decreased the number of complications being caused by the disease. A voluntary sample of eleven community members who had diabetes or a family member with diabetes, were recruited at a community church in Long Beach to attend a diabetes lecture. A pretest was given, followed by and educational session on basics of diabetes and techniques in implementing cultural foods into their diabetic diet. Then a posttest was administered. There were significant gaps between basic diabetes knowledge and integration of cultural foods into the diabetic diet. These results indicated a need for future projects to integrate education on cultural foods, so individuals with diabetes can still enjoy cultural foods while achieving glycemic controls
