New! – Diabetes Health Education
Managing diabetes can be intimidating without proper support. Patients with diabetes learn they must balance medications, blood glucose monitoring and practice a healthy meal plan to live well. RCH has partnered with FreeState Health to provide an educational framework for patients and their families to successfully manage diabetes by keeping their blood glucose levels under control and avoiding future complications.
Patients visit face to face via video-conferencing with a Diabetes Clinical Nurse Specialist. This allows patients to schedule appointments at their convenience close to home incurring less expense from unnecessary travel and time away from work.
