About Us

Dr. Robbins

Our Mission...

"...to empower patients, health care providers, families, and their communities by providing education, research, and skills needed to successfully manage their diabetes."


The staff of the Cray Diabetes Self-Management Center believes the acquisition of self-care skills is a central component of good medical care for persons with diabetes. Because diabetes mellitus is a lifelong condition involving day-to-day lifestyle changes, we are committed to the concept of diabetes self-care.

Our concept is supported through a diabetes self-care program that is easily accessed, promotes knowledge, behavioral changes and skills necessary for lifestyle alteration.

Our goal is to empower health-care providers, persons with diabetes and their families to become informed and remain current with diabetic management skills to promote health and prevent complications. We are also dedicated to being a diabetic educational resource in the heartland.

The Cray Diabetes Self-Management Center stands as the clinical arm of the Diabetes Institute where translational research, innovative educational technology and practices are implemented.
