Living with Diabetes

Meet with our Education Team!


One of the most challenging parts of diabetes management is the fact that patients have to make so many decisions -- every day -- on their own. How many carbohydrates are in this meal? How much insulin should I take? What adjustments do I need to make?
The DRI's Education and Nutrition Services team can help!

Due to the need to limit visitors to our campus, our class offerings are not being held in person at this time. However, virtual or in-person appointments with the nutritionist or a diabetes educator are available. For more information, please call 305-243-3696 or send us an email.
