Ky. ODs offer how-to wellness guide for patients with diabetesMay 13, 2013
Kentucky Optometric Association (KOA) members David T. Woody, O.D., and Lisa Sloan Woody, O.D., collaborated with other health professionals in their area to create a new “Diabetes Wellness Guide.” This guide is now used by their local health department and is given to new and existing patients with diabetes to increase awareness of resources.
“We think this is a very practical way for optometrists to take the initiative in diabetes education and network with providers in other fields,” said Dr. David Woody. “Every diabetic that has received the guide through our office has truly appreciated it.”
This informative “Diabetes Wellness Guide” is an excellent example of how ODs connecting with other health professionals benefits their patients with diabetes.
The guide is available to anyone, and the format can be easily adapted for any community.
