Diabetes Disaster Response Coalition takes action in hurricane season

Helmsley is proud to partner with organizations like the Diabetes Disaster Response Coalition (DDRC), who are ready to engage at a moment’s notice as disasters threaten the health and wellbeing of individuals managing disease.

This week, DDRC is taking action to support people living with type 1 diabetes who are impacted by Hurricane Lane in Hawaii. DDRC created a Patient Preparedness Plan to walk individuals through the steps of assembling an emergency diabetes kit. The Patient Preparedness Plan also includes critical phone numbers and websites that are especially useful in the aftermath of natural disasters.
