The Wilkes County Diabetes and Nutrition Center began in 2009 as part of the Wilkes County Health Department. Since then, it has grown to become the largest American Diabetes Association accredited Health Department Diabetes program in the state. Working with the Health Foundation, Wilkes Regional Medical Center, and at the request of the medical community, the Diabetes and Nutrition Center opened its new building on Jefferson Street in August 2012.
Thank you to the Health Foundation for supporting our facility.
