At the Cole Center Family Y in Kendallville, we partner with Parkview to improve the overall health of our community. They do a great job to make our community better and provide resources for people to live better lives. Parkview is a huge asset to our community.
Parkview Health and specifically Parkview Community Nursing and outreach has ben kep to the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne launching the Y's Diabetes Prevention PRogram to the community as well as a number of other prevention programs. Parkviews passion and care for the community exceeds the expectatons of many in the healthcare field as we strive to look at the barriers that prevent our community from reaching their healthiest potential. Parkview collaborates with the Y on our National Healthy Kids Day serving over 1200 youths help develop healthier eating habits along with find fun ways to increas activity and decrease screen time, builidng healthier habits for long life span. Parkview provides free glucose screens for areas in need as well as provide nursing staff to educate on the "numbers" and guiding participants to local programs that will help benefit their help and reduce their risks of chronic diseases. It has been a pleasure getting on board with the Parkview LiVe project and providing families with tools to make healthier eating choices and family physicial activity for better living.
