NorthShore University HealthSystem Launches Diabetes Outreach Program for Lake County's Medically Underserved
Date:3/12/2009

Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in Lake County

Evanston, IL (Vocus) March 12, 2009 -- NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) is pleased to announce a $1 million commitment to the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center (LCHD/CHC) for Be Well-Lake County, a program dedicated to addressing the steadily growing problem of diabetes in the county.

In Lake County, nearly 36,000 residents have been diagnosed with diabetes. It is estimated that over 11,000 more have undiagnosed diabetes.

"With a record number of people losing health insurance and delaying life-saving medical treatment, now more than ever diabetes patients need to have access to quality healthcare," said Mark R. Neaman, Chief Executive Officer, NorthShore University HealthSystem. "The goal of this program is to begin to build a coordinated network of healthcare for the underserved population in Lake County."

NorthShore's funding announcement is a culmination of lengthy discussions with the LCHD/CHC about the most effective way to pool and maximize resources in addressing one of the fastest growing health threats in Lake County. With the necessary infrastructure already in place both institutions decided that providing critical funds to treat diabetes and provide education and awareness would have the most impact on the health of the targeted population.

"The need for diabetes prevention and treatment is real," said Irene Pierce, MSN, the Health Department's Executive Director. &
