The Diabetes Education Program at Bridges CHC is hosted at both sites in Fort Erie and Port Colborne/Wainfleet and open to anyone who lives in these communities. A team of diabetes nurse educators and registered dietitians work with health care providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, podiatrists and social workers) to provide the best care for people living with or at risk of diabetes.
