Operation Diabetes is a patient care project that promotes diabetes awareness through screening and education within the community. At our health fairs and outreach events, our patients are provided with point-of-care blood glucose screenings, A1c screenings, and patient education. Our goal is to help patients understand diabetes, the risk factors that can lead to diabetes, and the importance of healthy lifestyle factors as prevention measures, especially in underserved communities. Our volunteers will be able to develop their patient education skills on diabetes and practice point-of-care testing.
