Diabetes Education Services

During the COVID outbreak, the Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center is striving to meet your care needs while complying with UK HealthCare directives related to patient safety. We are currently offering appointments in-person but continue to provide TeleCare options to help minimize risk of exposure to the virus. Patients can call the center to discuss all options. Diabetes Education services are also available in-person or through TeleCare. You are required to wear a mask onsite, as it protects you and those around you.

The UK Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center offers group and individual diabetes education services for patients with Type 1, Type 2 or gestational diabetes. Our expert diabetes care and education specialists work closely with each patient, helping to create a personalized plan to manage the patient’s diabetes and improve their quality of life.

Diabetes education specialties

Our diabetes education services are designed for all ages and all walks of life. Diabetes self-management education is centered on the seven American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) Self-Care Behaviors, which range from healthy eating and physical activity to problem-solving and healthy coping skills. Our diabetes care and education specialists work closely with each individual patient to ensure they are managing their Type 1, Type 2 or gestational diabetes to the best of their abilities.

If you or someone you love has recently been diagnosed with diabetes, our education program can equip you with tools to manage your condition and lead a healthier lifestyle.

Alternatively, if you or someone you love has prediabetes and is at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, we also offer preventive services through our Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Diabetes Prevention Program.
