People Centre’d On Diabetes was formed in 2008 by a group of Centre County Pennsylvania residents with a common interest in improving the lives of our friends and neighbors living with or at risk for diabetes. The group is composed of people with diabetes, family members of those with diabetes, health care providers and other community members with an interest in the growing epidemic of diabetes in the Centre region. We believe improving health is not just the prerogative of health care professionals but must be the responsibility of all. Diabetes is a community issue and tackling the challenges of diabetes requires community effort. Community empowerment is our mission and our goals are focused on educating people about diabetes and facilitating activities in the community so individuals and institutions enable those with diabetes to live well, and help prevent others from becoming diabetic. Our goals are ambitious and reaching them will require hard work and patience. We welcome everyone to join us in our effort. Please email [email protected] to learn more about PCOD.
