What Is Insulin Pump Therapy?
An insulin pump is a small device about the size of a small cell phone that is worn externally and can be discreetly clipped to your belt, slipped into a pocket, or hidden under your clothes. It delivers precise doses of rapid-acting insulin to closely match your body’s needs:
Basal Rate: Small amounts of insulin delivered continuously (24/7) for normal functions of the body (not including food). The programmed rate is determined by your healthcare professional.
Bolus Dose: Additional insulin you can deliver “on demand” to match the food you are going to eat or to correct a high blood sugar. Insulin pumps have bolus calculators that help you calculate your bolus amount based on settings that are determined by your healthcare professional. Please click on the link below to find out more information on this innovative device, or call the Eads Clinic and schedule an appointment.

What is MORE Care?
MORE Care (Medical Oral Expanded Care) is an initiative of the DentaQuest Institute (DQI) with an aim of providing primary and secondary preventive oral health services in primary care medical offices to underserved populations, as well as testing optimal patient-centered referral systems between primary care and dental care teams.
Addressing Rural Disparities through MORE Care 
Millions of Americans lack access to basic oral health care. Children and adults living in rural communities, however, face additional challenges including higher rates of poverty, dental provider shortages, and a lack of dependable transportation.  
Although rural primary care providers have the potential to play a pivotal role in the oral health of their patients, several key elements needed for successful integration of oral health into primary care are currently lacking, including:
Medical education training on oral health competencies needed for primary care providers to provide primary and secondary oral health prevention 
A sustainable, systemic model for collaborative practice with dental providers
Practice systems that support oral health care delivery and coordination with dental providers

DQI is partnering with state offices of rural health to begin testing strategies to overcome these barriers and develop the systems in the primary care practices to support the delivery of oral health care as well as develop infrastructure to create a dental delivery system for patients who need dental treatment of disease.
