The Diabetes Center at St. Elizabeth has been awarded "Education Recognition" by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). This prestigious status certifies that our program adheres to the ADA's national standards for providing people with necessary and accurate information and training to manage and treat diabetes.
At St. Elizabeth, patients and their families receive education and support to successfully manage their diabetes and live a healthy life. Taking a team approach, nurses, pharmacists and nutritionists work closely with the patient's physician to develop a personal education plan tailored to each patient's level of understanding and acceptance of diabetes.
