Education is at the heart of our mission as an academic medical center as we reach out to teach patients, certified diabetes educators, healthcare professionals, students and the community.
Our goal is to provide instruction and technologies to help you manage your diabetes to the best of your ability. We believe that with education you can achieve therapeutic goals and in the long run prevent long-term diabetes complications. A team of physicians, nurses, dietitians and certified diabetic educators provides group and one-on-one classes.

Community & Scientific Events
A primary goal of Ohio State’s Diabetes Program is to provide state-of-the-art education for patients, staff, healthcare providers and professionals. We organize an annual community-wide diabetes education to share information on prevention and treatment of diabetes as well as discuss new technologies. This public forum has been extremely successful for the citizens of Ohio. This includes church education programs, community-wide conferences for citizens of Columbus as well as partnerships with other local diabetes agencies.
During late 2007, we hosted the Global Diabetes Summit Scientific Event and Community Event. Ohio State also organizes continuing medical education courses for professionals.
