It has been estimated that a person’s health care costs triple the year they are diagnosed with diabetes. Even preventing diabetes by 50% could result in substantial health care savings. In 2014 36% of Solano County hospitalized patients had diabetes. Diabetes increases the cost of hospitalization – by nearly $18 million in 2014. Solano County had the second highest rate of diabetes in hospitalized patients in the state of CA. Solano County has been estimated to have at least 110,000 obese adults and at least 22,000 people with diabetes.

The Mobile Diabetes Education Center (MOBEC) will provide direct diabetes prevention programs and diabetes education services for people in Solano County by traveling into the community and providing a safe and reliable space for community members to participate in our Diabetes Prevention Program.

Services provided include:
