Eve Greene, the health department’s Licensed Diabetes Educator said, “About 25.8 million Americans (8.3 percent of the population) have diabetes, 7 million of whom do not know they have the disease.


Diabetes is very complex and requires continuous medical care and risk reduction strategies including ongoing patient self- management education and support. There is significant evidence proving that support and education improve diabetes outcome.”
