The Clarinda Regional Health Center (CRHC) Diabetes and Nutrition Health Team has been awarded the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Education Recognition Certificate for its quality diabetes self-management education program.

This program was originally recognized by the ADA in 2009 and has earned re-certification several times.

The National Standards for Diabetes Patient Education Programs are designed to promote quality education nationwide for every person with diabetes. Approval by this national association ensures the program meets the national standards for excellence in diabetes education.

CRHC’s Diabetes Management Team helps patients and their families manage type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes.

Our team includes nurses and dietitians. Working together with your physician, we will develop an individualized treatment plan to help you manage your diabetes.
