Free Diabetes Care Through Virtual Visits

These are tough times for patients with diabetes. We want to help our community in this time of need and uncertainty. It is now more important than ever to take control of your diabetes. Our free clinic is now seeing patients, through virtual visits only. While the visit itself is free, please note that we are not providing free meds, labs, or supplies. Your free virtual visit will include a consultation with a doctor/provider and a diabetes navigator, and a pharmacist when needed.
