Diabetes Prevention and Education

Holy Cross Health's Diabetes Prevention and Diabetes Education Program offers multidisciplinary instruction in diabetes management.

The program is staffed by a registered nurse who is a certified diabetes educator, a registered dietitian and a board-certified endocrinologist experienced in the care and treatment of this disease.

We also offer a specialized diabetes education program to teach self-management techniques to mothers-to-be in personalized, one-on-one sessions. Through the Holy Cross Gestational Diabetes Program, women with gestational diabetes are able to meet with a certified nurse diabetes educator and dietitian.

In 2014, US News and World Report recognized Holy Cross Hospital as high performing in diabetes and endocrinology, and ranked the hospital as one of the best in the Washington D.C. area for 2014-15. Our program has received recognition from the American Diabetes Association for quality self-management education.
