Martha Londono, MPH, MOMS Diabetes Coordinator

Martha Londono has over 25 years of experience as a community health professional with a diverse background in nursing administration, curriculum and program development, implementation, and training in South America and the US.  She is certified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the area of Diabetes Education and has worked with the CDC’s National Diabetes Education Program to develop Diabetes: La Comunidad en Accion, a Spanish-language diabetes prevention curriculum for communities in Mexico and the US and directed the training for 1,300 health care providers.  Martha is working closely with colleagues at MOMS Orange County to implement the enhanced Pregnancy & Diabetes program, train home visitors on diabetes prevention strategies using the CDC’s Road to Health Toolkit and work with clients in the program through group classes and one-on-one support.

“Even with my background in health promotion and diabetes education, to be able to work directly with clients to prevent the onset of or manage their gestational diabetes is a learning opportunity for me as well,” Martha shares, “The chance to have direct contact with clients is so valuable because pregnancy is such an important time to do real prevention work and impact the health habits and lifestyles of mothers and their babies.”
