Diabetes


25.8 million children and adults in the United States—8.3% of the population—have diabetes. Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes.

As quality leaders in diabetic care, Oakwood can help you manage your diabetes through education, training and self-management tools.
