DIABETES MANAGEMENT CLASS:  Learn how to take care of your diabetes in our "Just a Start for Diabetes" class

Diabetes is a complex disease that is sweeping the country. California has nearly three million people with diabetes, meaning that more than 1 out of 10 adult Californians has diabetes.

Total Diabetes Care
In our continuous efforts to provide the highest possible quality of care for our patients, Desert Regional Medical Center has formed an association with the Joslin Diabetes Center, a one-of-a-kind institution on the front lines of the world epidemic of diabetes.  Based on a strong tradition that began more than 100 years ago at its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, the Harvard-affiliated Joslin Diabetes Center is one of the preeminent global leaders in clinical treatment, education and research. 

The Only Care of its Kind in the Region
Desert Regional Medical Center is the only hospital in Riverside County and one of two in California to offer a partnership with the world-leader in diabetes care.  As a result, area residents now have convenient access to Joslin-based expertise in total diabetes treatment at this Palm Springs-based diabetes care clinic.
