Who are we

The Touro Mobile Diabetes Education Center (MOBEC), is a state-of-the-art mobile trailer operated by Touro University California Diabetes Research and Management (DREAM) team with the help of student volunteers to bring FREE diabetes screening and education to the people of Solano County. Through the use of this mobile education center, we aim to break the barrier between healthcare providers and community members in the prevention of diabetes. We provide not only diabetes screening for members of the community who may not otherwise have adequate access to healthcare but also education to the public about their risk factors, thus aiming to prevent diabetes and prediabetes in their lives.

What we provide to the community

Touro University California staff and current health professional students volunteering with the MOBEC interact one-on-one with each community member who visits the education center, assessing the visitor's risk factors for diabetes, providing diabetes screening—both blood glucose screenings and A1C screenings for high risk patients—and individualized education to prevent diabetes and prediabetes. Education methods include one-on-one counseling regarding lifestyle modifications, nutrition, medication education, and exercise education.

If space permits, "Dia-BEAT-it!"—a low-impact exercise program—is led hourly by student volunteers to provide community members with ways to get active at home without the need for a gym membership or any formal exercise equipment.

Community members of all ages are encouraged to visit the MOBEC and take advantage of this free screening service available to all residents of Solano County. If children under the age of 18 wish to be screened, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Future Directions

Touro University California student volunteers and staff hope to provide healthy cooking demonstrations to expand the efforts on diabetes prevention, education, and outreach beyond the borders of Solano County, providing more Californians with effective screening to prevent the spread of this preventable condition.

On-site computers are available to use for researching diabetes or other health conditions including links about diabetes.

On-site mobile library, including healthy cookbooks and information about diabetes and its complications.
