More than 30 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes, and nearly 1.5 million more will be diagnosed this year. It’s important now more than ever to understand the risks and complications associated with this disease.
Diabetes Management Program
Diabetes education helps you become more aware of diabetes, learn what it takes to treat, and gives you the power to control it. Our Diabetes Management Program is an interactive education process led by a Diabetes Educator to assess, identify, and assist people with diabetes, and their families, on ways to best manage their disease and prevent complications. Our Diabetes Management Program has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education and Support.
