Community Health Program
Diabetics confront many challenges in their daily lives, including how and when to test their blood glucose levels. The UTMB Community Health Program will teach economically disadvantaged participants the skills they need to manage testing as an integral part of their daily routine. Additionally, ID bracelets imprinted with basic blood glucose ranges will be distributed. Since testing supplies are a hidden cost of disease management, this program will provide a limited amount of free testing supplies and list resources for obtaining supplies at little or no cost.
