Educational Opportunities

Rawlins County Health Center offers people with diabetes (PWD) and their families a complete program to help them understand the disease process of diabetes. We also provide the knowledge and basic tools for diabetes care including healthy eating, being active, monitoring, taking medication, problem solving, healthy coping, and reducing risks.

All of these services are provided by RCHC health professionals including a registered nurse/certified diabetes educator, and a registered dietitian/certified diabetes educator.

Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Kansas, and most other major health insurance carriers provide coverage for these services.
