Earlier today, ADW Diabetes attended a Diabetes Awareness education seminar at the Pompano Primary Health Clinic, which services the uninsured. They invited us to attend their seminar on Diabetes Awareness, and share our information with the patients with diabetes that they see.
We provided them with pill reminders, cheese and crackers, and a vegetable tray. The speaker at the clinic was very well-spoken and informative. This was a perfect example of why Diabetes Education is so important, and why we are giving back to the dedicated educators with our CDE of the Year Award contest.
Some of the important topics that were discussed were maintaining healthy eating habits, and keeping cholesterol at a healthy level. She also explained the best ways to treat a low blood sugar level. Knowing the symptoms of diabetes was the main part of the seminar, being that it was aimed more towards patients with pre-diabetes.
It is a great feeling to know that ADW Diabetes is here to help out the patients with diabetes who have no insurance and no means of getting the supplies that they need. The patients that we saw today are the reasons for why we are dedicated to keeping diabetes management affordable.
