Peggy understands first-hand how patients need to be matched with just the right person to make a connection, build trust, and help them take necessary steps forward and help them meet their goals. She enjoys being that provider for many people, and has always felt compelled to be a nurse and help people. She thoroughly enjoys working with youth and helping them manage their diabetes.
At a first meeting with Peggy, she spends some time getting to know her patients and sees what they currently understand about their condition, what they wish to know more about, and works together to establish the best way to communicate and move forward. She enjoys making a difference, working at Fort HealthCare in a rural hospital setting, and believes in the organization's Mission to make our communities as well as can be.
A teacher at heart, Peggy also manages a Diabetes Youth Group for patients and their families, which consists of educational sessions, fun gatherings and outings, and messaging through a closed group on Facebook.
The Fort HealthCare Diabetes Education department helps individuals manage their condition through personalized information, support, and education. Peggy sees patients by appointment at her office at Fort Memorial Hospital. A referral by a healthcare provider and a diagnosis of diabetes is required. Certain health insurances may cover appointments for diagnoses of pre-diabetes.
The Diabetes Education program and curriculum is recognized by the American Diabetes Association and follows American Association of Diabetes Educators guidelines for self-care behaviors.
