The goals of the Diabetes Clinic are to educate HRC diabetics in caring for their condition so they are empowered to take charge of their condition and grow better equipped to self-manage their care wherever they are, improve followup care for diabetics who come to the HRC and currently have no other source of primary care, and to make diabetes care more affordable by assisting patients with finding low or no cost prescription diabetes medications. The clinic provides patient-centered care focused on being collaborative and respecting the patient's autonomy. Patients will be set up with individual medical students for a longitudinal relationship focused on goal setting, healthy lifestyle changes, and coaching patients towards self-management.
The Diabetes Clinic is currently offered every other month and requires an appointment. To inquire about an appointment, please call (314) 282-5437 and leave a message if necessary.
