Nutrition & Diabetes Education Clinic:
The Nutrition & Diabetes Clinic works with patients, either individually or in groups, to help them discover the best ways to manage their health through diet, nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes, or, if needed, improved use of diabetes medications, including insulin.
   More than fifty percent of the Nutrition & Diabetes Clinic patients have diabetes. The clinic staff supports those who are new to living with diabetes, those who just want to find out what is new with diabetes management, or those who feel overwhelmed and frustrated managing their diabetes. We understand the challenges of living with diabetes and trying to make health and lifestyle changes.
