First Choice Health Offers Classes for Diabetes Month

HARTFORD — November is National Diabetes Awareness Month.

This month, First Choice Health Centers will be hosting a number of events to help educate our community on how healthy lifestyle choices can benefit those with   or without this chronic medical condition.

In addition to our events listed below, First Choice Health Centers is proud to offer Care Coordination services to our patients.  The goal of our Care Coordinators is to help our patients navigate the health care system which can often be overwhelming for someone with a chronic disease like Diabetes.  Our Care Coordinators help diabetic patients manage appointments with our Primary Care, Podiatry, Eye Care & Nutrition teams; connect them with outreach services such as SNAP, Medicaid/Medicare enrollment if needed.

They will also communicate with hospital or rehabilitation facilities if the occasion arises.

For more information about our Care Coordinators, please contact Dr. Colleen Rankine, PhD at 860-610-6142 ext. 142
