Her dedication to a healthier lifestyle through diet and exercise is a testament to the impact of determination on achieving health milestones.

Haley Jones, FNP-BC, who practices at CareSouth's Dillon office and has served as the provider for all three patients, has been instrumental in guiding these patients on their healthcare journeys. She emphasizes the importance of dedication and perseverance, likening it to running a marathon.
"I take pride in educating my patients about the purpose of Care South Champion Patient and helping them understand the importance of taking the time to accomplish their healthcare goals as if they are running a Marathon," said Haley Jones. "Their goals will not be obtained within seconds. They will need to travel along a journey filled with many obstacles, but if they keep a steady pace and focus on the finish line, the end result will be rewarding. Mrs. Dupree and Mrs. Carter remained dedicated along their journey. Both patients focused on improving their A1C levels, weight, and completing healthcare screenings.
