Diabetes Education makes a Difference.
Hillcrest’s Center for Diabetes Management is built on this belief. Recognizing that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work, the Center’s team of highly-trained dieticians, nurses and specialists work with each patient to tailor a program that includes diet, exercise and medication to fit his or her lifestyle. Through group sessions and one-on-one support, patients learn the skills they need to take control of their diabetes and live healthier lives.
