Located at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, the WVU Medicine Diabetes Education Center has a dedicated staff of registered nurses, certified diabetes educators, and dietitians who offer services for people with diabetes or who are at risk for developing diabetes. The Diabetes Education Center holds the Education Recognition Program (ERP) certificate offered by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The ERP promotes quality diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) for people with diabetes by certifying that services adhere to the national standards for DSMES. The WVU Medicine Diabetes Education Center has also received recognition from the U.S. News and World Report for its diabetes education efforts.

The WVU Medicine Diabetes Education Center sees patients with type 1, type 2, gestational, and pre-diabetes. Talk with your primary care provider (or the provider who is managing your diabetes) about a referral to the Diabetes Education Center for a consultation. Your provider will need to complete a referral form, and we will call you to make an appointment.
