The CEC completed their first session of the DISCO program through the SHRS Wellness Pavilion. The program addressed a top health priority, diabetes. Poorly managed diabetes can have negative life-altering complications including vision loss, foot ulcers and amputations, and kidney damage. This was an interdisciplinary program with students and faculty from the nutrition, pharmacy, and physical therapy programs at the University of Pittsburgh. The main priorities were to discuss medication adherence, monitoring, and maintenance, discuss barriers and concerns with eating, and emphasize the importance of movement. Results show participants benefitted from this program and took away valuable education.
