Diabetes Management Program

Diabetes Education Services (DES) was initiated in 1986 and joined our team in June 2010. DES was transitioned into the Diabetes Management Program (DMP). DMP strives to improve the quality of life for the individual with diabetes.

DMP provides optimal diabetes care for the individual with diabetes and their family, with a multidisciplinary approach, while focusing on self management of the disease. Diabetes Education including self-management is provided to clients across the life spectrum from pediatric to geriatric, recognizing the unique needs of each age group.
