The Diabetes Center offers an education program focusing on teaching self-management skills to patients with diabetes and their families. The program utilizes a team approach in developing an individualized plan for each participant. The Diabetes Center staff are certified diabetes educators, including a registered nurse and a dietitian. Since 1998, our program has been an American Diabetes Association Recognized Program, which means we meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.
The program does require a physician referral. If you are unsure as to whether diabetes self-management is covered by your insurance plan, the Diabetes Center will be glad to check your insurance coverage. The Diabetes Center also hosts and coordinates a diabetes support group, which meets on the second Thursday of every other month starting in January. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. at the Diabetes Center and is free and open to the public. If you would like more information about a referral to the Diabetes Center, please contact our office at (931) 520-7747.The Diabetes Center is located at 127 North Oak Avenue, approximately two blocks from the hospital.
