Diabetes Self-Management Sessions

for Patients at SMMC Clinic

Patients with pre-diabetes or diabetes can get one-on-one phone, video or in-person sessions (in English or Spanish) with a Diabetes Educator. They explain the basics of pre-diabetes and diabetes as well as how healthy eating and exercise can prevent type 2 diabetes or reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications. PCPs receive follow-up recommendations and updates from the Diabetes Educator.

  • To qualify, HPSM members must be patients at San Mateo Medical Center’s (SMMC’s) 39th Avenue clinic who have been diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes type 1 or 2.
  • To refer a patient, complete a referral form via SMMC’s eClinical Works (eCW) system and assign the referral to either Innovative Care Clinic’s Diabetes Educator or Nicky Reynicke. If you need assistance locating the referral form or have questions about the program, email nreynicke@smcgov.org.
