The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) recently awarded six Vidant Health locations with an accreditation underscoring exceptional care in helping diabetes patients control their disease.

“We are delighted to be recognized by AADE in this way,” said Dr. Karen Coward, regional medical director, Vidant Multispecialty Clinic — Tarboro. “This accreditation highlights the important work being done to support patients with diabetes and provide them with the highest quality of care available.”

As part of Vidant’s Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support Program, Vidant Multispecialty Clinic — Tarboro, Vidant Family Medicine — Wallace, Vidant Family Medicine — Washington, Vidant Internal Medicine — Washington, Vidant Wellness Center — Washington and Vidant Wellness Center — Greenville all received the accreditation from the AADE, recognizing excellence in using evidence-based best practices to combat one of the region’s most deadly diseases.

The accreditation emphasizes Vidant’s commitment to following national standards to ensure high quality of care and improved patient outcomes. The accredited sites offer health coaches and dieticians who give patients the knowledge they need to live with diabetes and help outline goals to form healthier life habits.

“This is a partnership that is truly patient-driven,” said Dr. Debra Thompson, vice president of Care Transformation for Vidant Health.

“Educating patients about what a healthy lifestyle looks like and encouraging them to achieve it are two of the most important things we can do,” Thompson said. “By partnering with patients and empowering them to take control of their diabetes, we are helping them achieve a higher quality of life.”

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent conditions in eastern North Carolina. Statewide, it is the seventh leading cause of death and an estimated one in 10 adults have been diagnosed with diabetes, according to Diabetes North Carolina. An additional 280,000 North Carolina residents may have diabetes and not know it.

“Diabetes and the issues it presents are connected to the leading causes of death in our region,” Coward said. “We will use these six accredited sites as a model for all of our primary care facilities. Our goal is to not only reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes, but to also help people lead long, healthy lives. Our mission to improve the health and well-being of eastern North Carolina drives this work, and I am excited about what the future holds for the patients we serve.”
