The mission of The Research Foundation is to strengthen the community and empower people to live healthier, productive lives through our health education and scholarship programs:
*Diabetes Patient Education*Injury Prevention Education for Youth*Support of nursing student scholarships and faculty professional development
The Harmon Diabetes Center is located at 2188 E. Meyer Boulevard and is a program of The Research Foundation. The Center sees approximately 700 patients each year teaching them how diet, exercise and medications play a part in good blood sugar control. The goal is to teach patients how to make modifications because it has been proven that if diabetes is kept in tight control people with diabetes can prevent the many life threatening complications that can accompany diabetes such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness and lower limb amputations. The Center provides service for patients regardless of their ability to pay for services. Patients are seen first on an individual basis and then have the choice of attending four group classes or two group classes. The Harmon Diabetes Center also offers evening classes in the urban core community that surrounds our Center where the incidence of diabetes is much higher than the national average.
