The clothing store where Ahmad works doesn’t offer health insurance. This forced him to make difficult choices when he became diagnosed with diabetes. He had to choose between if or when to test his blood sugar. He had to decide if or when to take his insulin.
Listen to Ahmad’s story.
Ahmad eventually became a patient of MLK Health. We help him manage his diabetes through regular clinic appointments and our community pharmacy. He learns how to live well with his diabetes through regular consultations with our registered dietitian.
When you Give for Good, you help Ahmad be able to test his blood sugar properly every day. Your gift helps other diabetics stay out of the emergency room because they now have access to the life-saving insulin they need.
