The North Country Diabetes Project is the only program in Clinton County certified by the American Diabetes Program (ADA). It is the result of a team effort involving CVPH, the Clinton County Health Department and JCEO. All of these groups worked together to develop a program that addresses this complicated and life threatening disease. Helping those with diabetes better manage their disease reduces complications and improves their overall health.
A grant was awarded to the group to help establish the program and to prove its worth. After months of collecting data, working to meet strict ADA standards and certifying staff, the program received the ADA stamp of approval.
Diabetes Support Group
The CVPH Diabetes Support Group was created in response to the need for information and meets the third Tuesday of each month at CVPH. For more information, call the Diabetes Education Center at 562-7326.
