Diabetes Wellness Center
Atrium is committed to raising community awareness about all diseases, especially “silent killers” like diabetes. Our Diabetes Wellness Center located in the community at 4218 Grand Ave., Middletown, offers the following community outreach services: Free finger-stick blood glucose tests; free weight checks; free blood pressure checks; on-site diabetes resource library; free glucose meter downloads with printouts; a computer workstation for individuals and family members who want to research diabetes information online; a demonstration kitchen; and community diabetes classes.
It is estimated that approximately 21 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with diabetes and more are undiagnosed, according to the U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention.) In Butler and Warren counties alone, there are more than 44,000 residents living with the disease. With treatment and proper care, individuals with diabetes can live long, fulfilling lives. However, if diabetes is not managed properly, it can lead to complications such as heart disease, stroke, and blindness. The goal of the Diabetes Wellness Center is to improve the quality of life for individuals with diabetes with personalized care plans and education.
