The St. Louis Diabetes Coalition is a Missouri non-profit corporation (501c3 tax exempt) governed by a 19-member Board of Directors. In December 1998, representatives from various managed care organizations, hospitals, physician groups, government health agencies, the American Diabetes Association, and pharmaceutical companies established the St. Louis Diabetes Coalition. It was created to address the enormous challenges of diabetes awareness and care through an integration of efforts and resources. As the coalition evolved, other groups joined and embraced the mission.
KICK Diabetes is our flagship program which focuses on a participant's needs and desire to improve health. Four educational sessions with a personal diabetes educator (e.g., nurse, nutritionist) take place at convenient times and places selected by a participant, such as a coffee shop, community center, library, place of worship, etc. Each session revolves around goals that a participant sets for himself/herself and shares with their personal diabetes educator. All participants receive ongoing feedback and support about diet, exercise, glucose monitoring and communicating with health care providers. Click the icon above to learn more.
