Winn-Dixie joins DPCA to help tackle national diabetes crisis

Winn-Dixie is joining the Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance (DPCA), an initiative aimed at tipping the scales against the epidemic of diabetes, prediabetes and obesity by expanding access to community-based programs that use evidence-based approaches to help prevent and control diabetes.

Trained Winn-Dixie pharmacists in 29 select Winn-Dixie stores in Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa will support patients enrolled in the Alliance’s Diabetes Control Program to help people with diabetes learn to better manage their condition and adhere to their physicians’ recommendations.

Winn-Dixie pharmacists will provide patient education and support to help people with diabetes better control the disease and reduce the risk of developing complications, such as cardiovascular, kidney and eye disease. After an initial visit, in-store pharmacists in the select Winn-Dixie locations will provide quarterly consultations to enrolled patients to evaluate their success in adhering to prescribed diabetes regimens and review patients’ test results for blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol.
