The School of Nursing at North Carolina A&T State University opened the new Diabetes Education, Prevention and Management Center, Thursday, May 1, at the Greensboro Urban Ministry.

The center is a partnership between the Greensboro Urban Ministry, Moses Cone Health Nutrition and Diabetes Management Center, and the School of Nursing at North Carolina A&T.

Housed at the Greensboro Urban Ministry, the center provides community members with free access to diabetes self-management and prevention education facilitated by A&T faculty and students. Community members can participate in screenings, one-on-one and group sessions and also have access to resources that help educate and prevent the disease.

“This is an extension of our mission,” said Inez Tuck, dean of the School of Nursing. “Our goal is to educate our students and to help create a healthy community.”
