The HEARTwork Better Health DIABETES Initiative launched with the understanding that people in Georgia are not confident about their health, and therefore they can’t be confident about their future.
FY 5 | Better Health Initiative HEARTwork
by MelanatedPEARL.org coming to Georgia
In 2022, health is a top concern for most Georgians.
While advances in healthcare are helping many live healthier lives than ever before, research also points to an increase in chronic conditions and diseases such as cancer, arthritis and diabetes and across Georgia people living with diabetes are experiencing barriers to accessing quality healthcare.
At MelanatedPEARL.org, we’re on a mission to educate, uplift, and empower by focusing on the impact of diabetes in our community. There are more than 34 million people in the U.S. who have diabetes—that’s 10 percent of the population.
So if you don’t have the disease, you certainly know someone who does.
Managing diabetes can be difficult, but there are ways you can help or offer support to someone who needs it.
The Melanated Pearl Corporation is proud to launch our Better Health Initiative entitled HEARTwork to support more equitable health outcomes for those caring for loved ones and or living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
