About Endocrine-Diabetes Education
The Rochester General Endocrine-Diabetes Care & Resource Center has provided quality education programs taught by experienced Certified Diabetes Educators for over a decade. You do not need to be followed by one of our Endocrinologists to receive educational services. Many patients choose to work with their own physicians to manage their disease and come to the Endocrine-Diabetes Care & Resource Center for educational services.
For those who have diabetes, we offer individual and group education along with a library of books, videos, computers with relevant Web sites and other resources. Our education programs do not require a referral to an endocrinologist; they can be accessed individually based on your needs.
Our programs, all recognized by the American Diabetes Association, include individual consultations and group classes with certified diabetes educators. We offer a patient-focused holistic approach both to preventing and managing diabetes. Information is available on everything from tracking carbohydrates to using insulin.
