Diabetes Awareness Month: GBMC Padonia
November 4, 2021
November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, with a focus this year on prediabetes. According to the CDC, more than 1 in 3 adults in the United States is prediabetic. That’s 88 million people, and many are not aware of their condition.
The good news is that managing prediabetes, and preventing it from becoming diabetes, can be accomplished with a series of small diet and lifestyle changes that add up to a healthier you. Things like choosing water instead of sweetened drinks, or walking more, can make big changes in your overall health. And be sure to stay vaccinated, not only against COVID-19 but against seasonal flu as well. Diabetes is a risk factor for both.
It’s an appropriate time, then, to celebrate one of our clients in the medical field: The new GBMC Health Partners Primary and Specialty Care facility at York and Padonia Roads in Timonium, MD. It’s a 14,000 square-foot space offering advance primary care, gynecology, orthopedics, physical therapy and more.
We would normally share photos of the comfortable furniture we provided in one or more waiting rooms for a medical facility like this, but the new GBMC facility doesn’t have any. Patients go directly to their exam room after checking, offering both a streamlined process and a safer environment.
And in keeping with the preventative advice on prediabetes, the team at GBMC Health Partners takes a proactive approach to patient care, regularly reviewing data to make sure all health screenings are up to date and contacting patients if something needs to be addressed.
Douron was able to provide workstations, tables and seating on the second floor for GBMC Padonia’s billing practice. We’re proud to be associated with this beautiful, patient-focused new facility.
