Elmwood Health Center Diabetes Education Program Recognized for Excellence

The Elmwood Health Center (EHC), an affiliate of People Inc., recently received recertification for its Diabetes Education Program by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). EHC’s program remains in full compliance with the stringent national standards set by the AADE.

“This recertification means we continue to stand among the country’s best programs,” said People Inc. Associate Vice President Frank Azzarelli. “We are incredibly proud of this achievement.”

The Elmwood Health Center established its Diabetes Education Program in 2012 as a result of our active participation in the P2 Collaborative of WNY Diabetes Care Initiative. In 2014, the program served 89 patients which resulted in 138 visits with the EHC’s Certified Diabetes Educator.

The news about the EHC’s recertification comes in the same month as The American Diabetes Association’s annual Diabetes Alert Day. Observed this year on March 24, Diabetes Alert Day is a one-day wake-up call to inform the American public about the seriousness of diabetes, particularly when diabetes is left undiagnosed or untreated.
