The proposed program focuses on diabetes patients in Cobb County in Georgia. Introduction Diabetes is one of the major chronic diseases found in the current world. It is in the group of metabolic ailment that is diagnosed in relation to high level of sugar in the body. The level of sugar in the body is determined by the inability of the pancreas to produce enough insulin or the poor response of cells towards the insulin produced (Brill, 2011). High levels of sugar in the blood lead to classical symptoms of diabetes which are: increased thirst, frequent urination and increased hunger. Scientifically, these symptoms are termed as polydipsia, polyuria and polyphagia respectively. The adverse impacts of this diagnosis are loss of weight while in other cases paralyze some of the body parts (Fratti, 2011). However, there are three types of diabetes. This is articulated to the cause of the ailment. The first type is known as Type 1 which is caused by failure of the body to produce insulin. This requires the patients to frequently inject insulin into their bodies. The second type is known as Type 2. It is caused by insulin resistance thus the condition occurs when cells fail to utilize insulin produced in a proper manner. The third type is referred to as gestational diabetes. This type of diabetes arises when pregnant women who have not been previously diagnosed with diabetes eventually develop high levels of glucose in their blood during the gestation period (Graffy, 2013). Description There is need to educate the public on the causes of diabetes and ways of surviving with it if diagnosed. This approach can foster control of the disease through proper management and mitigation. Basic education provides the public with a rough idea of the disease and ways of managing it as well as the approaches taken towards its control. In this case education is an essential tool in the minimization of diabetes infection. The greatest fear in dealing with diabetic patience is their non-adherence to teaching. Lack of knowledge about the disease makes the patient vulnerable and prone to worse stages of the disease. Education reduces chances of accruing the disease by providing healthy living tips. Healthy living makes the immune system stronger as well as creates room for positive metabolic processes. This makes it hard for the body to experience sugar deficiencies as well as high levels of glucose in the blood. Wellstar Cobb clinic has designed a proposal that will foster education in the region and minimize the adverse effects of diabetes disease in Cobb County. The main aim of the program is to assist at least 20 financially disabled patients diagnosed with diabetes. This notion came into concern after the clinic realized that some patients abort medication after a certain period of time. This form of ignorance is associated with the type of lifestyle in the region as well as the harsh economic conditions. Assessment Diabetes is currently a world pandemic. 34% of annual death rate result from diabetes related cases. Countries such as Canada are highly affected as it has registered over 9 million diabetic patients between the year 2011 and 2013. The worst scenario is that of the developing countries as the case is sterilized by high poverty levels. Most diabetic patients from the developing nations hardly survive for a long period of time with the disease due to high costs of food products and medical facilities in these regions. In other cases, developed nations

The two key types of diabetes are Type 1 and type 2 diabetes. While type 1 diabetes normally occurs in children and adolescents, thus requiring lifelong insulin injections for management and survival, the type 2 diabetes mostly attacks adults and is often related to obesity, unhealthy eating habits/diets, and inactivity.
