Only ten Nurse Practitioners are chosen nationwide yearly to participate in the program. This Fellowship provides a mentor who will provide Angela with guidance to further develop diabetes education and prevention here in Douglas. Angela’s mentor is Dr. Carmen T. Paniagua a Clinical Associate Professor of the College of Nursing & College of Medicine, Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Specialty Coordinator and Advanced Practice Nurse in Genetics at the University of Arkansas for Medical Science. This mentorship program will bring CHD Clinic on the same standard as those of Phoenix and Tucson hospitals.

Schroedl is the Nurse Practitioner at the Community Healthcare of Douglas Clinic (CHDC) located at Southeast Arizona Medical Center (SAMC). She came to Arizona from Michigan four years ago where she received her B.S.N. and her Masters in Science and Nursing from Ferris State University. Angela’s Nurse Practitioner Certification was obtained thru American Nurses Credentialing Services and she is now working on her Doctorate through the ASU College of Nursing and Health Innovation. Angela’s Doctorates thesis is on “Diagnosis and Treatment of Metabolic Syndrome in Hispanic Women Affects Cardiovascular Disease”.

A Nurse Practitioner has a background in nursing and can carry out approximately 80-90% of the functions that a Doctor performs and can write and refill prescriptions.

She will also be attending the American Academy of Diabetic Educators in August to give a presentation on “Diagnosis and Treatment of Metabolic Syndrome in Hispanics, a window of opportunity for Hispanics “.Metabolic syndrome is a multidimensional disease process affecting many individuals. Obesity fuels metabolic syndrome. There is an increased risk of complications such as diabetes and cardiac issues which decreases quality of life and increases health care costs significantly. Furthermore, there are minority disparities which influence early diagnosis and treatment of metabolic syndrome. Recognition of the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of metabolic syndrome (especially in minority groups such as Latinos/ Hispanics) reduce risks of complications for the underserved and vulnerable populations.

In May, A Bilingual Diabetes Class/Support Group will be lead by Angela and will meet the third Wednesday of every month 5pm here at SAMC. This service is free to those who have Diabetes, have a loved one with Diabetes or are just interested in the subject. If you would like to attend or would like more information please call Angela at 520-805-5932.

Schroedl also heads a weekly blog on Southeast Arizona Medical Center’s website called The Rural Health Compass where she will answer questions, provide information and discuss health issues. Please check us out at http://www.samcdouglas.org.
