Care Coach Program

Are you struggling to keep your blood glucose in a healthy range? Our Care Coach program can help. Participants in our program successfully lowered their A1C and demonstrated a reduction in the distress caused by their diabetes by implementing behavioral, lifestyle, and medication changes, thanks to more frequent contact with a diabetes expert, called a care coach.

Working alongside your provider, your coach is your go-to resource for all your diabetes needs. You and your coach will discuss:

  • Managing medications (e.g., medication changes, financial assistance, refills)
  • Managing blood sugar (e.g., individual trends, approaches to keep in target range)
  • Training on diabetes technology (e.g., continuous glucose monitoring)
  • Encouraging better lifestyle habits (e.g., motivation, exercise, nutrition plans)

The Care Coach Program was developed in collaboration with Shields Health Care Group. To be eligible, you must complete diabetes education.
