Diabetes Education

At CHI St. Joseph’s Health, 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 dieticians 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.
