  • Diabetes Navigation

    Our diabetes nurse navigator works with youth and adult clients who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes to help overcome health system barriers by offering individualized, patient-centered care coordination, social support, and assistance to clients and families.  

  • Peer Support

    Special events are held to help build peer support and connection among youth reached by the diabetes navigator and our diabetes camp. These in-person opportunities help to reinforce these connections throughout the year.
