Vision Statement 

Frederick County is a thriving community that provides access to healthy lifestyles for all residents and supports all people living with or at risk for diabetes.

Subcommittee Goals

  • Awareness Subcommittee: Frederick County residents will understand what pre-diabetes and diabetes is, what their individual risk is and how it can be modified.
  • Prevention Subcommittee: Identify Frederick County residents with pre-diabetes. Of those identified, increase the percent who are aware of their increased risk of diabetes and the available resources 
  • Management Subcommittee: Decrease volume of patients seen in local emergency departments, doctors’ offices, and Urgent care centers for acute diabetes treatment.
