Diabetes Education

During the 2018 Community Needs Assessment the need for a diabetes education/program was identified. The number of Diabetes patients in the Patterson Health Center service area continue to trend up. By adding this educational service, we will be able to prevent, detect and treat chronic complications. Our patients and families will learn how to manage their disease and improve their health. Our goal is to reduce the number of diabetics and improve health disparities, this will have a ripple effect by also improving other diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity to name a few. 

Lakin Whealy, RDN, LN, would love to help you reach your goals. If you have any questions about the Diabetes Education, please call her at 620-914-1200 EXT 2405.

We would like to thank the Harper County Community Foundation for the grant we received to support and promote this educational service that is needed in this community.
