HCQU In Action

HCQU Blog:
On February 15, 2012, I went to visit an individual with intellectual/developmental disabilities who lives independently, to teach the importance of diabetes and healthy nutrition. This individual, who is diabetic, was skipping breakfast and lunch and having issues with low blood sugar levels. After educating this individual on the importance of eating regularly to keep their blood sugar levels stable, they contacted me on February 28, 2012 to report they were receiving a regular lunch delivery. They had spoken to some of the other residents about the training and received the name of a church that provides nutritious lunches every day to their particular apartment complex. I praised this individual for their efforts.
