Take control of your health!

What We Do

Salud y Vida at HOPE

Salud Y Vida is an innovative program developed by local organizations to transform the delivery of chronic care management in the Rio Grande Valley. Salud Y Vida identifies participants with uncontrolled diabetes and invites them to participate in a structured program to ensure stabilization and/or improvement in their health status leading to decreased acute care utilization.

The Salud y Vida program holds as its vision that vulnerable participants with diabetes mellitus will achieve improved health after participation in the Chronic Care Management Program. We strive to empower each participant, and their families, to understand their diagnosed chronic condition. We bridge the gap from living with uncontrolled diabetes to controlled diabetes by providing participant centered comprehensive care utilizing a multi-disciplinary delivery method and medical treatment coordinated with primary care.
