Nicole shared that the diabetes clinic is located near the new ER at the Farson Street Plaza in Belpre and that they serve over 3,000 patients in the region. They offer many educational programs for the community, often for free, or at reduced prices.   Many activities are held to raise funds for the “Diabetes Education Fund”, which aids diabetes patients in many ways.  This fund supports the free education programs they offer, and also helps to pay for often very expensive medical devices for patients who can’t afford them.
