Our mission is "to positively impact the lives of community members with diabetes through individualized, comprehensive education, and disease management strategies." Our team of diabetes educators will provide information about the disease process, types of diabetes, complications, nutrition, exercise, medications, stress, healthy habits and blood sugars. Education will also be provided on the use of a glucometer and insulin therapy if needed.
Fitzgibbon Hospital requires a referral from your primary care provider in order to attend classes. Your insurance can be billed directly for these services. If you have questions regarding coverage, contact your insurance representative. Financial assistance is available if needed.
Our staff is ready to meet your needs! For more information about the Diabetes Education Program at Fitzgibbon Hospital, call (660) 831-3265 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
