Diabetes and Weight Management at SBH Health System

SBH provides patients with education, screening, and treatment to help them modify their behavior and better manage their diabetes and related conditions including obesity. SBH diabetes and weight management services are directed by a board-certified endocrinologist and nurse practitioner, who work in collaboration with a dietitian, primary care physician, clinical pharmacist, certified diabetes educators, medical assistant, and other healthcare professionals as needed.
