My name is Dana Wade, MD.
I have created Monitor My Health to educate the most vulnerable people in our community - those with low incomes and little education of various age groups. Healthcare has not always been a priority in their lives, and preventive measures have been absent.
We address the shortage of minority physicians by offering scholarships and mentorships to promising minority students interested in a career in the medical field.
A disproportionately higher number of Americans, particularly from minority and lower socioeconomic groups, are not equally enjoying the benefit of the advances made in preventive care for diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.
Due to the limited time physicians can spend with their patients, a knowledge gap exists. Patients often do not have an accurate understanding of their diagnosis or the recommended treatments.
Our goals are to help patients understand their condition(s), explain how the prescribed pharmaceutical treatment works, and empower them to make lifestyle changes relevant to their health while being informed and taking an active part in the decision-making process. By building knowledge and understanding of the physiologic basis of disease, patients feel empowered to make more informed decisions about their healthcare. Also, by providing information and resources about healthy lifestyle choices, patients are better equipped to make decisions that will promote healthier habits on a daily basis.

I support Bridging the Gap Education because I believe their preventive work through screening and education are the best cure for diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Their focus on the low socioeconomic status group and children is particularly interesting.
