  • Take Charge—two-day comprehensive learning experience led by a team of professionals.
  • Free monthly Diabetes Dialogs—support group.
  • Gestational diabetes counseling.
  • Carbohydrate counting.
  • Insulin pump training.
  • Insulin initiation training.
  • One-on-one counseling.

Memorial’s diabetes education service is recognized by the American Diabetes Association for "excellence in education."
