Diabetes Services
Cary Medical Center's Diabetes Care Program is designed to help participants learn how to manage their diabetes through a comprehensive education program.  Supervised by a team of specialists, including certified diabetes nurse educators, insulin pump trainers, and dietitians, the Diabetes Care Program includes five 2-hour classes that provide the participants with information about understanding and controlling their diabetes.  Family members are encouraged to attend these classes at no additional cost.  One month after the class ends, participants meet individually with the nurse educator and dietitian to review their progress.  These sessions are held every three months for one year.

For young people with diabetes, we offer a unique adventure camp every summer.  This week-long, overnight program combines fun outdoor activities with educational workshops all lead by a team of diabetes specialists and volunteers.

Our Diabetes Care Program is nationally recognized by the American Diabetes Association and our team of specialists are instructors through the Maine Diabetes Prevention and Control Program.  Participants can be assured that they will receive the most up-to-date information and care.
