“There was a patient in his mid-fifties. He was working a pretty sedentary job, and wasn't really exercising. He learned that he had pre-diabetes and didn't want to get diabetes. Learning that pre-diabetes was reversible was a wakeup call for him. Now when he comes into clinic, he is telling me about his 50-mile bike ride and his blood sugar is back to normal. He is one of those people who doesn't really need to come in every six months, but he does because he really wants to be on top of his health. Seeing that one conversation can really turn somebody's entire way of living their life around is really cool.” - Carly Magnusson, MD, resident physician at Virginia Mason who also volunteers at Eastgate Public Health Center #VMoments
