The Diabetes program gives people living with diabetes, or at risk of developing diabetes, the knowledge and skills needed to become self-managers of their disease. A significant focus is on the prevention of complications by achieving optimal glycemic control.
Our services are offered in partnership with the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Diabetes Education Team and include individual one-on-one counseling & group education. Your diabetes care may also include collaborative services from a foot care nurse, pharmacist and dietitian.
By sharing one medical record this reduces medication errors, provides real time reports to your physician and avoids the duplication of tests.
We provide a program called A Good Life with Diabetes.
