The Diabetes Treatment Center at Takoma Regional Hospital provides education for individuals with diabetes on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Our outpatient education program provides classes that are recognized by the American Diabetes Association.
We offer a variety of classes that are taught by registered nurses and registered dietitians.
We know that taking care of your diabetes is a big challenge, so we work with you to provide education and care that will enable you to control your diabetes.
We specialize in teaching self-management. Self-management empowers our patients to take charge of their diabetes and -- in partnership with their diabetes healthcare team --manage their diabetes and live healthier lives.
