Washington County Hospital and Medical Group will be featuring an education series titled Living with Diabetes.  This series will be held on Monday/Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the conference rooms located in the lower level of the Hospital.  The first night will be on Tuesday September 1st, then on the 8th, 15th, and Monday the 21st.  Ginger Fewell, MD and Pam Lowry, FNP created this educational program, based on the feedback from their patients, for the people of our community with diabetes and prediabetes. 


Not only is this a great educational opportunity for the people in our community with diabetes but for their entire family.  This series will provide educational information on how diabetes affects not only the patient but the whole family and how the family can help support their loved ones.  The topics will include information on nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, medications, foot care and what to do for low blood sugar.

Through its Ready Campaign, the Federal Emergency Management Agency educates and empowers Americans to take some simple steps to prepare for and respond to potential emergencies, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Ready asks individuals to do three key things: get an emergency supply kit, make a family emergency plan, and be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses.


All Americans should have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least three days if an emergency occurs. Following is a listing of some basic items that every emergency supply kit should include. However, it is important that individuals review this list and consider where they live and the unique needs of their family in order to create an emergency supply kit that will meet these needs. Individuals should also consider having at least two emergency supply kits, one full kit at home and smaller portable kits in their workplace, vehicle or other places they spend time.
