About Our Diabetes Program

The Pomerene diabetes education program is accredited through the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists. We offer a team approach that involves the patient, family, physician, registered nurse, and dietitian. Together, this team helps the patient learn how to take care of himself/herself with up to date information. One-on-one sessions are available at various times during the week to provide individualized instruction to best meet your needs in your diabetes management.  
Each session will review the following content:

Your healthcare team may be experts on diabetes but you are the expert on you. No one else can manage your glucose for you. Diabetes is largely a self-managed chronic (lifelong) disease and education is essential in equipping individuals with the best knowledge and tools to care for their diabetes. Working closely with your healthcare team and diabetes educator to manage your diabetes can lessen your risks of complications from diabetes. Remember, as your life changes, your plan may need to change too. Anytime your plan isn’t working, it may be time for a change in plan.
