World Diabetes Day is Recognized Locally

November 19, 2013

On November 14th 2013  Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital’s Diabetic Education Program  with the full support of hospital administration made World Diabetes Day part of its community outreach campaign to raise awareness to this disease that affects over 27 million Americans.
In 2007 The United Nations formally designated November 14th as World Diabetes Day. The date was chosen in honor of Frederick Banting whose contributions help lead to the discovery of insulin. Today over 200 nations participate.

Schoocraft Memorial reached out to local schools including Manistique Middle and High School, St. Francis, and Emerald schools. Kris DeMars and her HOSA students ran with it. The end result was sea of blue shirts both within the hospital and within this small lakeside community as employees, students, and citizens alike donned their blue shirts in support of awareness of diabetes.

SMH diabetic educator Cory Miller was invited to make presentations regarding diabetes prevention to two classes of HOSA students.

The SMH Diabetic Education program is available to assist diabetics with their diabetic self-management care.

Cory Miller Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital Diabetic Education Coordinator would like to personally thank Kris DeMars, Mr. Shiner, Eric Mason, Kitty Lovell, and all those within the local school systems for not only allowing but also encouraging staff and student participation.
