The Health Education Program encourages and supports patients on their path to living a healthier, fuller life through two key prevention programs: the Diabetes Education Program and the Cardiovascular Program.
Diabetes Education Program
This program provides education, support and provision of medication and supplies to diabetic patients in our Health Center. The education has provided significant, measurable improvement in the health and lives of our diabetic patients.
In 2015-2016, a value of $1.3 million in medication was acquired for our diabetic patients.
This program provides patients with cardiovascular wellness tests, treatment plans, and educational workshops to improve and manage their heart health. High blood pressure and high cholesterol are among the most common diagnosis of Free Clinic patients.
