The ANTHC Diabetes Program clinical team is a multidisciplinary group of diabetes experts specializing in managing the diabetes needs of Alaska Native people. The Diabetes clinical team consists of a physician, nurse practitioner, a dietitian, and a pharmacist, who are also certified diabetes educators, and a nurse case manager.

We provide guidance for people with:

  • All types of diabetes
  • Complex diabetes medication regimens
  • Insulin pumps
  • Continuous glucose monitors
  • Diabetes complications

We also aim to provide support in teaching diabetes self-management techniques during clinic visits and our semiannual Group Medical Visits. We partner with our patients to better understand how to:

  • Live well with good nutrition and activity
  • Self-monitor blood sugar
  • Manage food insecurity
  • Take diabetes medications
  • Take care of feet, eyes, and teeth

In addition to providing patient care at ANMC, the ANTHC Diabetes Program’s clinical team provides patient care at Tribal health regional hospitals across the state during annual Diabetes Specialty Clinics. Contact your local clinic for more information.
