With the recent news of the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, access to quality healthcare is top of mind for many Ohioans. The HealthPath Foundation of Ohio supports organizations such as the Jefferson County Fourth Street Health Center (JCFSHC) that work to improve health care access for underserved populations.
Jefferson County Fourth Street Health Center’s “Free to be Healthy” Diabetic Education Program provides patients an education on their illness and collaboratively makes a plan with them, helping them change unhealthy aspects of their lives.
“Our Free to be Healthy Diabetic Education Program was formed in 2012 after our team realized 24% of patients had been diagnosed with diabetes or metabolic syndrome,” said Ann Quillen, executive director, JCFSHC. “Diabetes is a huge health concern in Ohio, as the Central Ohio Diabetes Association estimates that more than 897,000 Ohioans have the disease.”
The grant from HealthPath helped provide initial health screenings for patients, including blood glucose testing, blood pressure reading, HBA1C, lipid and triglyceride profiles, weight and abdominal girth measurements, and a quality of life assessment. Nurses and doctors have also been able to provide patients with an interdisciplinary care plan to include medication therapy management, patient education, obesity treatment, meal planning, foot and eye care, and follow-up appointments.
As a result of the program, lives have been saved, chronic conditions have been cared for, physical health and patients’ well-being have been improved, and, in many cases, a sense of hope has been restored to the patients of JCFSHC.
