Memorial Health System has become a vital resource for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes who seek our care each year. We strive to give all people with diabetes the opportunity to live long, healthy and productive lives. We do so with advanced teams of board certified endocrinologists, certified diabetes educators, nurse educators and a registered dietitian.
Our highly experienced diabetes specialists offer comprehensive care through medical treatment, education, lifestyle and nutritional modification, group and individual counseling, support groups and weight management. Many of our patients benefit from easy-to-follow oral medications, though training in insulin treatment is also available.
The prestigious American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate for a quality diabetes self-management education program was recently awarded to the Diabetes Education Center for the period of July 18th, 2014 – July 18th, 2018. The ADA believes that this program offers high-quality education that is an essential component of diabetes management. The Association’s Education Recognition Certificate assures that educational programs meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs.
Diabetes education is an integral component in the care of patients with diabetes. Memorial Health System’s Diabetes Education Center is committed to providing those living with diabetes, their families and significant others with ready access to education, services and information.
Our program partners with the patient’s physician to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve and maintain optimal health. Our goal is to reduce the risk of short and long-term complications that may develop from diabetes. Education and self-management will give patients control of their diabetes and their life.
To access services of the Diabetes Education Center, a referral from the patient’s physician is required. Appointments are required for all sessions.
