Self Regional Healthcare’s Diabetic Education Center is a valued business partner of VR’s Greenwood office and has been referring individuals for VR services for 4 years. In just the past year more than 22 individuals referred by the Center have received additional health management education, counseling and guidance, and training which led to maintaining their current employment or achieving employment.

Through this continued partnership individuals with diabetes are living a healthy life and reaching and maintaining their goals.
