Norton Sound Health Corporation offers a Diabetes Education program. The intent of this program is to empower communities to develop culturally sensitive programs promoting healthy lifestyles to prevent chronic illness and to personally empower individuals to take ownership of their healthcare through family and community based support to improve the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. Services offered include diabetes case management, diabetes prevention, and health promotion. Staff includes nurse case manager, registered dietitians, director, data coordinator, and secretary. Not only is diabetes management available for support and direction, CAMP staff also provide programs and activities for prevention purposes including individual screening and counseling, community presentations, physical fitness activities, mini grants for villages, tobacco cessation and more. CAMP operates under three grants: the non-competitive SDPI grant, the DPP grant, and the HP/DP grant.
