Outpatient Diabetes Care Program

Unlike many health conditions, diabetes can be controlled by patients themselves when they have an understanding of medical management and lifestyle strategies.

At Norwood Hospital, our Diabetes Care Program provides comprehensive education and support for participants and their families. From diet and exercise information to medication and glucose monitoring, Norwood Hospital’s specially trained health professionals partner with participants to help them learn how to self-manage their diabetes and decrease the risk of future complications.
