McCready Foundation Building a Healthy Community One Person at a Time

Diabetes Management

McCready supports a "Diabetes Management Services" program to assist our community in addressing an abnormally high incidence of the disease.

According to ongoing studies conducted by the state's Family Health Administration, roughly 1 in 10 Somerset County residents has diabetes -- and health-care professionals believe that number could be even higher.

McCready is a partner in the Tri-County Diabetes Alliance, a consortium of healthcare organizations in Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties working to educate and assist those living with diabetes about what they can do to fend off this disease.

McCready offers periodic education programs sanctioned by the American Diabetes Association, including counseling for meal-planning.

The healthcare professionals at McCready are committed in every way possible to helping their neighbors confront this growing epidemic.
