At UTMB Health, caring physicians and experienced
clinicians work with each patient to identify the best individual
approach to diabetes prevention, evaluation and management. There is
compelling evidence supporting this comprehensive and coordinated
approach for diabetes and other chronic diseases.
The Stark Diabetes Centers provide state of the art clinical care,
research and education for disease conditions and syndromes including
diabetes and dyslipidemia.
The diabetes education program at the UTMB Stark Diabetes Center has been 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.
