The Liberia Diabetes Center (LDC) located on Front Street in Monrovia now has a community diabetes educator in Liberia.
She is Ms. Jenneve Jackson. Prior to joining the LDC, she worked for One Source Pharmacy located on Benson Street.
According to a dispatch from the United States, Mr. James Momoh, founder and chief executive officer of the LDC, welcomed Ms. Jackson as its community diabetes educator stressing that with the prevalence of diabetes in the country, the message of diabetes management and prevention needs to be heard in every community in Liberia.
Momoh said to fight diabetes in Liberia, awareness will be a key component and Ms. Jackson’s affiliation with the LDC will achieve one of the many objectives for which the Center was established.
“Ms. Jackson comes with a wealth of experience as a diabetes educator and we look forward to providing her with the necessary resources that will be directly intended to benefit Liberians that are dealing with the complications of diabetes,” Momoh said.
He urged Liberians to support Ms. Jackson’s effort whenever she is in the community providing awareness on the prevention and management of a medical condition that is now claiming the lives of many Liberians in the country.
Ms. Jackson will be providing diabetes sufferers and those without, the opportunity to benefit from diabetes testing and to encourage them to seek further education and health assessment at the LDC.
Momoh said the LDC is not a clinical institution but has all the resources needed for the management and prevention of diabetes.
