Diabetes Education

The North Durham Family Health Team is pleased to provide Diabetes Education for our patients.
Our Diabetes Team consists of Registered Dietitians and Certified Diabetes Educators.

The Diabetes team consists of Certified Diabetes Educators, Registered Dietitians, and Chiropodists. The purpose of the Diabetes program is to provide our patients with self-managed diabetes education to optimize the health of individuals, families, and our community. Our program was developed to enhance the patient experience, increase access to service, prevent diabetic foot ulcers and amputations, improve health care outcomes in our community, and reduce ED and hospital admission due to poorly managed diabetes and complications caused by foot wounds and ulcers.

Please speak to your doctor about a referral to our Diabetes Education Team for a one on one appointment or to one of our Prediabetes/Diabetes Educational Sessions.
