November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Categories: Diabetes Education

More than 30 million people across the United States are living with diabetes. Approximately 1.25 million individuals have type 1, while the majority have type 2. Living with a chronic illness like diabetes can be challenging, and at the Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center we are here to support patients and their families in both the clinical, emotional and wellness aspects of diabetes care. Our goal is to partner patients in identifying the best ways to meet their treatment goals while supporting their lifestyle and personal priorities.

The Center offers a variety of services, including but not limited to:

  • Diabetes education and medical nutrition therapy
  • Insulin pump management
  • Weight management and diabetes prevention via Healthy Lifestyle Program
  • Gestational diabetes management
  • Registered dietitian consultation
  • Endocrinology consultation for co-management alongside patient’s primary care physician
  • Peer wellness groups for T1D and T2D

​We invite the community to learn more about diabetes and how to take steps to manage their diabetes successfully. Upcoming events include:
