Diabetes Education

York Hospital's Diabetes Education program provides information, education and support for those who are newly diagnosed or living with diabetes. Education centers on gestational diabetes, pre-diabetes, starting insulin, medication changes and insulin pumps.

Staff

Our team includes certified diabetes educators (CDE) and our program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association. We are passionate in our commitment to helping each person gain the knowledge and skills necessary to control their diabetes and to achieve the highest level of wellness possible. Services are provided by specialists - Karen Gilroy, RN, CDE and Barbara Moriarty, RD, LD, CDE, who recognize that each person is an unique individual with unique needs.

Diabetes is a chronic condition whose presence can intrude into every aspect of one's life. The Diabetes Education staff work with many providers in helping educate patients about their condition. Our mission is to provide our clients with the information they need to work toward obtaining the best diabetes control possible for them. This involves assisting with the integration of self-care behaviors into their decision making process with their physician, and of achieving optimal health outcomes and quality of life.
