We are a comprehensive resource center providing education and resources toward prevention and treatment of diabetes. We offer nutrition services, wellness education, weight management, group and individual education for type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes as well as insulin and diabetes medication administration.
We have 2 goals. To identify and treat asymptomatic people who have risks factors for developing diabetes, or who have pre-diabetes, helping to reduce their risk of complications and reduce their health care costs. And to help those who have diabetes to regain their highest functional level, minimize the negative effects of the disease, minimize hospital visits and prevent complications.
