By 22 December 2022News

On 13 November, on the occasion of the celebration of World Diabetes Day, the European project CEAD, led by Professor Lucy Anne Parker, from the Department of Public Health, History of Science and Gynaecology and member of the Global Health Research Group, presented the first results of the project through a theatre workshop held at the Casa Barrial 1º de Mayo, in the El Calzado neighbourhood of Quito, Ecuador.

It was a meeting forum in which UMH and PUCE researchers together with patients with diabetes and their families from the Chimbacalle Diabetes Club, as well as participants in the CEAD survey, had the opportunity to reflect on the experiences of health users regarding the barriers to access to public health in the context of the pandemic.

This activity was developed within the Organiza 2021 programme, which promotes the organisation of actions to disseminate the scientific and technological culture of the UMH.
