i.e., before and after the intervention. Results: Among the 30 patients who met the inclusion criteria, 83.3% of
them had the A1C level >6.5%. After 12 weeks of intervention, the percentage of A1C significantly declined
to 23.3% (p=0.00). Conclusion: Public counseling is effective to increase medication adherence in patients
