Massachusetts Diabetes Education Program Coalition

The MDEP is a coalition of the Massachusetts Pharmacists Association, Massachusetts Podiatric Medical Society, Massachusetts Society of Optometrists and the Massachusetts Dental Society and a partner of the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP).
"If you have diabetes it's important to know your blood sugar level, blood pressure and cholesterol, and to review your medications with your pharmacist each year. It's also important to bring all your medicines and visit your optometrist and podiatrist at least once a year and your dentist every six months, to avoid serious, diabetes related health problems such as blindness, foot amputations, drug interactions and heart disease."
