For years, Terry Vanatta, RN, worked with diabetes patients as they learned to live with their disease and the conditions that were associated with it. She became passionate about working towards preventing the disease and its co-morbidities whenever possible, so when an opportunity came to work in Weight Management, she jumped at it.
“The patients I work with inspire me every day,” she says. “They show so much hope and courage. They tell me stories of how they have gotten their lives back.”
Knowing the struggles that bariatric patients face along their way, Terry also frequently offers encouragement and support. She cheers them on for the hard work they’re doing and always reminds them that they are not alone.
Terry loves being a part of the Weight Management team as well as a St. Vincent Healthcare associate.
“I am so grateful to be a part of St. Vincent Healthcare, she says. I thank God for this opportunity.”
