This free outpatient clinic provides services to ASU faculty, families and students. The program offers education and management for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance (pre-diabetes), and metabolic syndrome. Providers, including registered nurses, physical therapists, registered dietitians, laboratory technicians and social workers, assist patients as they make psychological and social adjustments to living with a chronic disease and help patients and their loved ones sustain the lifestyle changes necessary for diabetes management throughout life. The program is designed to assist patients in managing diabetes through diet, exercise and medication while preventing complications of the disease. The program is based on the belief that individuals with diabetes need to focus their efforts on overall health and not the disease only. For this reason, and for those individuals without diabetes, the program includes education of other issues such as weight management, lipid control, blood pressure management, and other related areas of lifestyle change. The ASU Diabetes Self Management program is located on the ground floor of the Reynolds building on the Jonesboro campus.
This program has received National Education Recognition from the American Diabetes Association. The recognition identifies programs who meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management education.
