The diabetes education program at the UTMB Stark Diabetes Center is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for Quality Self-Management Education. The ADA recognition effort is a voluntary process that assures diabetes education programs meet national standards. One of the primary goals of the education recognition program is to ensure high-quality, consistent education for patient self-care, to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and prevent some of the acute and chronic complications of diabetes.
The educational program includes interactive sessions with our certified diabetes care and education specialists and dietitian. During these sessions, you will learn about diabetes, medications and complications, self-management and care, and healthy nutrition. The program also offers a support group discussing diabetes-relevant topics monthly. For more details, ask your healthcare provider.Read More
