The WMH Foundation recently helped to purchase some diabetes education supplies for our registered dietician, Kim Greiner. In her role as a diabetes educator, she uses many tools to educate patients as they learn about their condition. Some of those tools are models of food, posters, hand outs to take home, recipes, and instructing them how to make good choices for good health.
In addition to these educational tools, the Foundation also purchased a computer software program called ‘CampViews’ which was used for the first time this summer for the annual camp experience that is held for kids that have diabetes. This computer program makes the whole process easier, faster and safer for both the kids attending and the health care professionals that volunteer to help. This summer camp is a great resource for diabetic kids to ‘just be kids’! They get to do all the fun camper activities with the safety and security of having knowledgeable professionals on site.
The health and well being of our families and friends here in the Chautauqua region are important and our Foundation will try to assist however we can!
