Our Approach

Approximately 18 million Americans suffer from Diabetes. Unfortunately, an estimated five million people do not even know they have the disease. Our diabetes management program provides individual and group education that teaches you the skills needed to manage your diabetes on a daily basis. Our diabetes educators will meet with you one-on-one with you and your family to assess your personalized treatment and lifestyle modification needs. You will also have the opportunity to participate in group classes enabling you to learn about diabetes whether it is something new or something you've been living with for years.

Our team of diabetes specialists and certified diabetes educators help you and your families:

  • Understand how diabetes affects blood glucose levels
  • Learn how to monitor blood glucose at home
  • Understand how to select foods to assist in controlling blood glucose levels
  • Prevent low blood glucose levels
