Diabetes Improvement Program

When you are living with diabetes or have a loved one who is, building connections with a diabetes care team can be the best medicine.

We are proud to be a nationally accredited program by the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists (ADCES).

Our Mission:

To provide quality diabetes self-management through coordinated education and compassionate support to patients and families affected by diabetes.

Our program is a patient-centered initiative to serve our community “Como Familia – Like Family.”

Our Goals:

  • To provide culturally sensitive and evidence-based education based on the needs of the individual with diabetes via group or individual sessions.
  • To empower people affected by diabetes with the skills to self-manage their disease starting at the time of diagnosis and throughout their lifetime.
  • To provide practical education to help prevent and delay the development of diabetes complications.
  • To offer a supportive environment for those living with diabetes and those who care for them.
