Diabetes Education Wins Again!

Kristina is a registered nurse who has faithfully volunteered every Wednesday for the past five years.  She is from East Contra Costa County and works as a school nurse in Antioch.  She has endless compassion and graceful patience when working with our most complicated patients. 

She is one of our most consistent volunteer and is always willing to do whatever is needed. However, she mostly volunteers as our diabetes educator and performing one-one education for patient.  She has had many great success stories in her time with us.

One profound story is about a patient "M", who already had high blood pressure, came to our clinic in 2014. And later she was diagnosed with diabetes, high cholesterol, and chronic kidney disease at our clinic during her visit. After M had a one-on-one diabetes health education session with Kristina, her condition is now well under control and additionally she has lost 32 pounds!

M put in all the hard work with the guidance of Kristina and are truly proud of her successful journey to improving her health.
