"Our diabetes team has seen an increase in patients diagnosed with diabetes in our community," said Diabetes Educator Deb Bronson, RN, BSN, CDE. “Not all insurance plans pay for the tests needed for diabetes management. This event will raise funds to help off-set the financial burden patients might be faced with when receiving a diabetes diagnosis.”
