We provide prevention and education services and activities for patients at our facility and in the community. Our team follows the Indian Health Service “Balancing Life with Diabetes” program and works with area partner organizations to provide prevention services resources.
Prevention and Wellness services we provide
We provide individual and group sessions. Individual education offers a one-on-one basis for patients as needed by our RN/CDE (Donna Burke) or our RDN/CDE (Candy Jackson). Our group sessions are 9 classes at 3 different times throughout the year taught by the Diabetes management staff.
