Diabetic Education and Wellness Fund established at RMHF

According to the American Diabetes Association, more than 714,000 children and adults in Indiana suffer from all forms of diabetes, including type 1, type 2 and gestational. Approximately 1 in 4 of those who have diabetes does not know it. And at least 1.6 million Hoosiers are living with pre-diabetes, putting them at risk for type 2 diabetes in the future.

Today, it is estimated that 1 in 3 children born after the year 2000 in the U.S. will develop diabetes. These staggering statistics are being addressed by Rush Memorial Hospital. A Diabetic Education class is offered by Nutrition Specialist Dena Bills at RMH. Learning how to make healthy food choices to prevent and manage diabetes are very important and RMH offers this and much more in the classes. To talk with Dena Bills about the Diabetic Education class call 765-932-7416.

Recently, a donor has funded the creation of a new Diabetic Education and Wellness Fund at the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation. This donor has an interest in providing funding for the class along with wellness programs the hospital may want to offer in the future.

“It is great to see folks make an impact on community health through their generous giving. This fund can make a difference in the lives of many diabetic patients and individuals in our community. As the fund grows the hospital can offer more wellness related opportunities within the county. Many thanks to our donors,” Faith Mock, RMH Foundation Director, said. “We are looking for interested donors that are wishing to impact the wellness of our community. All donations are gratefully accepted and are tax deductible.”

Donations to this or any fund can be made online at www.rushmemorial.com and type in the fund name in the comment box. They can also be mailed to the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation, 1300 North Main Street, P.O. Box 215, Rushville, Indiana 46173. Checks should be payable to the RMH Foundation with Diabetic Education and Wellness Fund or specific fund name written in the memo section. For additional information on this fund or any fund at the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation contact Faith Mock at 765-932-7568.
