Southern Jersey Diabetes Outreach and Education Services

What is DOES?

The Diabetes Outreach and Education System program (DOES) works with individuals and organizations to increase public awareness and encourage actions that will help communities control diabetes and its complications. This initiative supports the National Diabetes Education Program effort to help communities across the country develop comprehensive outreach programs and education campaigns to control type 2 diabetes.

The DOES program targets five southern Jersey communities: Atlantic , Cape May , Cumberland , Salem and Ocean Counties . It is the first program of its kind in New Jersey and is a statewide model.

How DOES Can Help You!

Each year over half a million people are diagnosed with diabetes. While there is no cure for this chronic disease, helping people with diabetes learn to control the disease is one important way to make a difference. Scientific evidence shows that aggressive treatment of diabetes with diet, physical activity, and medications can prevent or delay much of the illness and the complication associated with diabetes.

 

Through DOES, we are charged with spreading the word that diabetes is serious, common, costly and controllable. Our efforts are directed to:

Individuals
We’ll provide you with information, materials and training on diabetes and help you identify diabetes resources in your community.

Organizations
By partnering with community resources we can strengthen our outreach and intervention efforts by offering assistance that can enrich community-wide outreach and education activities.
