District 4 Public Health - Nurse Practitioner

The addition of Nurse Practitioners to several District 4 health departments has provided a much-needed resource to aid in preventing and controlling chronic diseases that affect entire communities. Nurse Practitioners currently serve in the following county health departments to promote healthy lifestyles:

Diabetes and Hypertension

Diabetes and hypertension are two of the major chronic conditions that District 4 nurse practitioners are targeting to improve in their communities.

Hypertension: (High blood pressure)
High blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems.

Diabetes: (Type 2- Non-insulin dependent)
Type 2 diabetes is high blood glucose levels caused by either a lack of insulin or the body’s inability to use insulin efficiently.

Our Family Nurse Practitioners identify and manage type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and cardio metabolic syndrome among underserved or high-risk populations. They provide services such as:

  • Patient management, monitoring and education for persons with the diagnosis of hypertension and type 2 diabetes
  • Physical exams
  • Laboratory testing
