The Department of Public Health recently completed a Diabetes Scorecard for each of the health departments throughout the Commonwealth. The Scorecard rated each diabetes program based on the diabetes-related activities completed in each community. The Lake Cumberland District Health Department Diabetes Education Program received the highest score in the state & was recognized for at the state-wide Kentucky Public Health Association meeting in Owensboro.
