Quality Patient Care
The Diabetes Center of Excellence clinical care team works to continuously improve our patient-centered approach. We provide lifestyle education to both the person with diabetes and when appropriate, to care-partners (e.g. family members). Our team includes specialists in both adult medicine and pediatric care, including certified diabetes educators, dieticians, exercise physiologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, office support staff, as well as primary and specialty care physicians.
The goal is to educate and empower the person with diabetes to learn everything needed to effectively manage this complex and chronic disease. Our "North Star" or guiding principle is to provide treatments that help people with diabetes avoid disease complications so that they can lead long, healthy, and independent lives, until the cure is found.
