Diabetes Education

 

The Indian Health Board provides patient diabetes education through the respective Tribal Health Clinics. We employ two Registered Dietitians, both of whom have credentials as Certified Diabetic Educators. We also sponsor community events to raise awareness of diabetes, and promote healthy nutrition, and healthy lifestyle choices.
