Diabetic Research Institute © All Rights Reserved.
The Diabetic Research Institute is a non-profit organization which was established in 2004. Staff at DRI aim to empower diabetics with the self-management skills necessary to improve their quality of life by offering free evidenced based education and support to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics.
Another aim is to increase adolescent attendance, family participation and parental support for children affected by the disease. We invite parents to bring their children who are at risk of becoming diabetic or are Type 1 diabetics to our facility, where they will receive a warm welcome and free assistance with the appropriate care and education. Clients will be assessed by both the in house nurse, Nurse Smith and the physician, Dr. Gomez.
In an effort to spread local awareness we are partnering with teachers and school nurses in an attempt to identify children at risk of developing the disease and those who are currently living with Type 1/ Type 2 Diabetes.
