Managing diabetes can be challenging for patients who are struggling financially. Fortunately, Mary’s Center is here to help, thanks to the generous support of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company). Juan (shown above with Mary's Center Medical Assistant Wendy Quinteros) and his family are just one of many who have benefited from the BD Helping Build Healthy Communities program in conjunction with Direct Relief. Here is their story:
Looking for efficient, high-quality medical care and a way to give back?
Meet Dari, who found both at Mary’s Center.
As a wife, mom of two and lawyer in Washington, DC, Dari doesn’t have a moment to waste. Like all of us, she doesn’t like sitting around at the doctor’s office when the doctor is 20 or 30 minutes late. That’s one of the reasons why she chose Mary’s Center.
Decrease your waistline and increase your chances of having a long, healthy life! That’s the message from Mary’s Center Registered Dietitian and Mary’s Center WIC Program Director, Akua Odi Boateng, who has some great nutrition tips to get you started.
At Briya Public Charter School, Mary’s Center’s partner in education, we believe that parents are children’s most important teachers — and a love of reading is a powerful lesson that parents can teach. Reading helps children build a strong foundation for school success and exposes them to new ideas about the world. And reading together is a wonderful way for families to bond!
Pediatrician Dr. Maria Marquez is passionate about children’s oral health. In this blog, Dr. Marquez, who is also the Medical Director of Mary’s Center’s new site in Fort Totten, Washington, DC, dispels some myths about dental health and shares some very useful advice on how you can protect your little one’s pearly whites.
