The Lerner Center has partnered with Crouse Hospital on a grant-funded project to address the knowledge gap that exists within provider networks over the new federal mandate for Plans of Safe Care.
Plans of Safe Care aim to help soon-to-be mothers with substance use disorder engage in early treatment initiatives, link with supportive services, and gain the tools to deliver and take home a healthy baby.
Created to help communities thrive, DIEMlife is an integrated online platform and free mobile app that helps members reach their goals—or ‘Quests®’, build healthy habits and connect with like-minded people who are pursuing a healthy lifestyle.
Through the accessible app, users embark on ‘Quests®’ with all the tools they need to track progress, fundraise, learn about local events and connect with worthy causes.
