Committed to Diabetes Education
UM Charles Regional Center for Diabetes Education celebrated five years of helping people live better lives with diabetes. The center sees approximately 750 patient visits a year, including pregnant women with gestational diabetes. The center received a $2.1 million Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission Regional Partnership Catalyst Grant to bolster and expand programs through 2025.
Academic Medicine at Work
For patients at risk of foot or leg amputation due to loss of blood flow, vascular surgeons at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore perform a complex procedure with an innovative twist that can save the limb by converting a vein to do the work of an artery. It's a process akin to restoring life-giving water to a barren landscape.
