Diabetes Care Alliance

This club takes on a multi-faceted approach to provide students with opportunities to get involved in the community, hone their history-taking and physical exam skills, work closely with community physicians of many specialties, and gain leadership experience. We work with the Strelitz Center to develop research, community outreach and clinical exposure opportunities for EVMS students.
