What is the Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP)TM?
The primary goal of DEEP is to empower people to take control of diabetes and their health. Mountain-Pacific staff are trained to use the DEEP curriculum in diabetes self-management education classes. While our classes do not replace diabetes education taught by certified health professionals, they do encourage participants to engage in their health care and to better manage diabetes.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 29.1 million people have diabetes, and 8.1 million of those people are undiagnosed. Working within local communities, Mountain-Pacific Quality Health strives to improve diabetes health literacy, care and outcomes through the Everyone with Diabetes Counts program. Education is a key component to empowering patients to better manage their condition. By collaborating with local and national diabetes programs, Mountain-Pacific can help find the right diabetes education program for Medicare patients and their families, based on local resources available in their communities.
