The Wright Center for Primary Care was recently named an accredited diabetes education program by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. Its program, “Wright Steps for Healthy Living,” provides residents in Lackawanna, Wayne and Pike counties with increased access to diabetes education, a collaborative process through which people with or at risk for diabetes gain the knowledge and skills needed to modify behavior and successfully self-manage the disease and its related conditions.
Certified diabetes educator, Rosemary Takacs, RN, BS, CDE, leads The Wright Center’s program in collaboration with Karen Papi, MS, RD, LDN, CDE, who provides nutritional counseling.
