Our Staff

The Nutrition and Diabetes Clinic staff members are all Certified Diabetes Educators—and include both Registered Dietitians and Registered Nurses. Some of the clinic staff hold Master’s degrees or are board-certified in Advanced Diabetes Management; several have worked in the nutrition or diabetes field for more than 20 years.

The clinic educators all excel in their practice of compassionate, evidence-based medicine, and they continually advance their skills to help clinic patients best manage their health.
