Health Library, books may be checked out and a copy machine is available

Many of the teaching rooms include a sink and a  locked cart with supplies for insulin teaching, food models and printed material.

Located in the center of the Healthplex is the staff area. Patient teaching does not take place in this area. Staff are not grouped together by discipline. The diabetes educator may be seated next to a speech therapist or a cardiac rehab nurse. The idea is to promote networking with other outpatient services.
