The Diabetes Self-Management Program - offered through Mt. San Rafael Hospital's Rural Health Clinic - is committed to improving the quality of life for those with diabetes. The focus of diabetes education is on both the patient and their family, and centers on the cornerstones of diabetes self-management which include:

Blood Sugar Monitoring

The goal of the program is to provide individuals with diabetes, and their families, with the tools to take control of diabetes and safely manage the disease to prevent serious complications.
