Q: What is your favorite “moment” (example of how your organization helped)?
One of our providers had a dietetic patient come in with extremely high A1C and blood sugar levels, on lots of medications, unhappy and confused about his condition. She was able to connect him with our diabetes educator, who taught him how to eat with his difficult work schedule which was a major concern of the patient. With constant support from the provider and the diabetes educator the patient has been able to drastically lower his A1C and blood sugar levels, reduce his medication intake and is much happier. This is just one example of how our staff connects people with resources to help them live healthier happier lives.
