Current research suggests that dietary fiber from whole grains may provide protection against Type II diabetes. This report examines two studies on the relationship between whole grain intake and the prevalence of self-reported Type II diabetes and compares these results with the findings from the Healthy Weigh/El camino saludable (HW) program. HW is a community-based participatory research program in a primarily low-income, Hispanic and African American community, that helps families adopt healthy eating and activity patterns necessary to attain/maintain healthy weights. A convenience sample of 151 participants, aged 19-88 years, was recruited to participate in the 12-week HW Phase I Program. The program used a pre-test/post-test design. Participation was voluntary and all explanations about the study, including informed consent, were presented verbally to the subjects. All forms were available in both English and Spanish and designed for participants with limited English proficiency. Spanish-language interpreters were present throughout the program. A descriptive analysis was run on demographic, self-reported diabetes status, body mass index, daily grain servings and adequacy of grain servings variables. More than 62% of participants consumed less than the minimal age/gender requirements of daily grain servings. There was no significant relationship between self-reported diabetes status and total grain intake. It was not possible to analyze the relationship between self-reported diabetes status and whole-grain intake. This report was completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for ?Research and Theory in Nursing Practice?, a required course in Texas Christian University's baccalaureate nursing curriculum. The student shares her perceptions of the benefits and challenges of learning about nursing research and scholarship from this strategy.
