The Diabetes Center offers a team approach to help patients manage their diabetes and live healthy lives.

Patients work with their personal physicians, nurses, certified diabetes educators, and registered dietitians to develop a personal management plan that works for them.

The Center’s self-management education program has been awarded recognition by the American Association of Diabetes Educators in accordance with the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support Programs.
