Named after Cloud and Sally Cray of Atchison, Kan., the Cray Diabetes Self-Management Center was established and continues to be supported by the Cray family.
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.
