What is Diabetes Education & Nutrition Services?

When you are diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, your primary care doctor may refer you to our Diabetes Education Program. Your visit will be with a Certified Diabetes Educator who has a Nursing and/or Nutrition background and is specialized in Diabetes Education. They are here to help you make important dietary changes, control your blood sugar (glucose), and manage your weight if needed. This level of education is critical as you learn how to self-mange your diabetes.

Nutrition Services provide adults and children with counseling for a variety of health conditions, like weight management, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and heart disease. Our Registered Dietitians can help you create lifestyle changes which will improve your overall health. A referral from your primary care doctor is needed for individual sessions. 

How We Are Different

Our Certified Diabetic Educators and Registered Dietitians provide you with the tools and understanding needed to develop habits that improve your health. We collaborate with your primary care physician, along with specialists from our Endocrinology Department, to bring you the educational resources you need for greater health.

Our team provides one-on-one and group support for both Diabetes Education and Nutrition Services. We offer individual sessions and group classes for diabetes care, as well as a free monthly Diabetes Support Group. We also offer group classes on healthy eating for adults and children, ages 7-10. 

Diabetes Education & Nutrition Services is a sub-specialty of our Endocrinology department.
