The St. Anthony's LifeHelp Nutrition & Diabetes Center is certified by the American Diabetes Association
Our commitment is to provide individuals living with diabetes access to the training and knowledge they need to live well and control diabetes. We provide Diabetes Self-Management Training (DSMT) and Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) programs. Our center received renewed re-certification from the American Diabetes Association in accordance with the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs.
We received our initial certification in 2003; since that time, we have continued to set the bar high for excellence in diabetes training and self-management. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you owe it to yourself to learn as much as you can about this condition so you can enjoy full quality of life and health. Our team is here to empower you with the information you need to live well with diabetes.
