The Diabetic Research Institute is a non-profit organization which has been in operation for the past fourteen years. We provide free education and support for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics.
Our focus 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 to ensure that they receive 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.
