American Diabetes Month at AAMC
In celebration of American Diabetes Month, AAMC’s diabetes educators and diabetes resource nurses did what they do best – educate! On November 16, they set up tables at the South Port cafeteria and talked with over 200 passing patients, families, and staff about nutrition and exercise, pre-diabetes, and diabetes services available here at AAMC.
The city of Annapolis provided bike and walking maps of the city, while Christa Grimm, Energize rep, handed out AAMC walking maps and Energize class schedules. Interested? Click here for more details about the Energize Wellness Movement.
Thank you to diabetes champions Kim McCarthy, Saisa Neel, Toni Schiller and Carla Showacre, who were of great assistance—and to our awesome administrator, Jeannie Ashe. And thanks to pharmacy doctoral student Anh Tran, who developed an excellent handout on prediabetes. Congrats to Wanda Andrews who won a basket containing resources for supporting her health lifestyle: a jump rope, stretch band, pedometer and energy bars. –Margaret McLellan, MS, RD, CDE
