Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

The division promotes a culture of inclusion by making an effort to hire a diverse workforce at all levels including our physicians, nursing, clinical, and administrative staff. In our patient population, diabetes predominantly affects those who are economically and socially disadvantaged. The cost of medications, diabetes supplies, and even healthy food is a barrier to effective diabetes management. We have partnered with the Shield’s specialty pharmacy to offer a pharmacy liaison service to our patients and providers. Through this, we are able to assist our patients with cost-effective solutions for medication management which include patient care assistance programs and other cost saving options. We also offer a coach program at no cost, to provide one-on-one assistance to those struggling the most with their diabetes management. We partner with local agencies that help provide healthy food and other resources to the socioeconomically disadvantaged. We also provide a caring environment to the transgender population by meeting their unique treatment goals for hormonal therapies.
