Partnering to Prevent: Essentia Health

Melody Jahnk,
Volunteer and Community Health Coordinator
Essentia Health St. Mary's in Detroit Lakes is an 87-bed acute-care facility and clinic facility in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. This Benedictine-sponsored facility has partnered with University of Minnesota Extension to deliver the I CAN Prevent Diabetes (ICANPD) program. ICANPD is one of a few programs that Essentia Health St. Mary's is partnering to deliver in the community to provide preventive services. This 16-week course with eight monthly follow-up sessions was implemented this fall with three different groups.
