The Sweetwater County Diabetes Education Program is a service brought to you by the Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County and Sweetwater County Community Nursing Services.  Our program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association, which ensures you will receive quality education that meets the National Standards for Diabetes Self-management Education Programs.  Our team of nurses and dietitians offer one-on-one education tailored to fit your needs.  Our goal is to empower you, through knowledge, to manage your diabetes instead of your diabetes managing you.
