Boston Medical Center’s Diabetes Services mission is to improve the health and quality of life for people with diabetes through diabetes management, education, support, advocacy and research.
Our program is a Diabetes Self-Management Educational Program, recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and has received ongoing recognition since 1993.
The ADA endorses the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education (revised 2012) to promote quality education for people with diabetes. The ADA Education Recognition Program (ERP) assesses whether applicants meet these standards.
Living with diabetes can be very challenging. Our outstanding interdisciplinary team of highly experienced diabetes specialists, nurse practitioners, Certified Diabetes Educators (including nurses and dietitians), and sub-specialists with specialized skills in treating complex issues of our patients with diabetes share a commitment to helping you live life to the fullest.
Our coordination of care allows us to individualize a plan that is unique to each patient, one that may include medication, monitoring, lifestyle changes and nutrition education. Adults with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes whether newly diagnosed, poorly controlled, or in need of long-term care and follow-up will find exceptional care, without exception at BMC.
