In Camden, Intensive Care for Diabetics
A program to deliver intensive diabetes management to help bring the disease under control is being launched by the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers (CCHP), according to executive director Dr. Jeffrey Brenner. He indicates that nearly $4 million in grants is enabling the coalition to deploy nurses , health coaches , endocrinologists, and diabetes educators into five of the city’s medical practices .
The primary care practices are being chosen by a competitive process, said Brenner. The first is slated to open next month. The executive director, a nationally known urban healthcare pioneer, co-founded the CCHP in 2002.
