Diabetes is more common than most people realize. In fact, seven percent of the population suffers from diabetes and nearly one-third of these do not know they have the disease.

The Diabetes Management Center, accredited by the American Diabetes Association, works to inform our community about the disease, prevent diabetes and help persons manage diabetes so they can live as healthfully as possible and avoid complications.

While there is no cure, diabetes can be managed. Education is key to helping people with diabetes stay healthy from head to toe.

The staff, which includes a diabetes nurse educator and a registered dietitian, leads classes that serve as a comprehensive self-management program covering topics such as keeping blood sugar at safe levels.
