referral to a dietitian and/or a nurse educator may be arranged, such as for
someone with diabetes who requires instruction in diet, carbohydrate counting,
insulin adjustment, etc. These appointments normally take place in the Diabetes
Centre (709-777-6308) on the Main Floor of the Health Sciences Centre. After one
or more visits with the dietitian or nurse educator, a return appointment to Dr.
Kovacs's clinic is then arranged.
Nurses Gail Chafe, Susan Burlock and Juanita O'Leary are the diabetes educators in the Diabetes Centre. Jocelyn Martin and Gerianne Devereaux are the dietitians in the Diabetes Centre.
