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.
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.
