Diabetes Education Services

Diabetes educator with patient

During the COVID-19 outbreak, the Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center is striving to meet your care needs. To comply with directives related to patient safety, we can see in the clinic only patients with urgent care needs. To limit risk of exposure to the virus, patients can call the center to schedule a TeleCare visit with a provider. Diabetes Education services are also available through TeleCare.

The UK Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center offers outpatient diabetes education and prevention services for patients of all ages and their families.

Our diabetes education services team, made up of licensed diabetes educators – including nurses, dietitians, a pharmacist and other healthcare professionals – has extensive experience in teaching patients who have diabetes-related conditions. Together, we deliver patient-centered services with practical problem-solving approaches. Our team uses strategies such as goal setting, action planning and shared decision-making to help patients meet their goals and live a healthy life.
