Florida Atlantic University’s Diabetes Education and Research Center, a part of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, relocated Jan. 2 to the Westgate Community Center in West Palm
Beach, Fla.

Coinciding with its relocation, the FAU Diabetes Education and Research Center will become a program under the new FAU Community Health Center, maintaining its niche in diabetes care and education for both children and adults, while providing additional services to its patients, according to a news release. New services include comprehensive primary care, mental health services, well-child services, chronic disease management, nutrition services, laboratory services, referrals to specialty care and case management.

“This is an exciting time for the FAU Community Health Center, enabling us to go where people live and work to embrace a healthy tomorrow and empower communities while expanding the services we offer to our patients,” Eugenia Millender, director of the FAU Diabetes Education and Research Center, said in the release.

“By providing a comprehensive, holistic, community-based multidisciplinary approach to managing health care, we help our patients control their health so they can live happy, active and
productive lives.”

The FAU Community Health Center provides culturally sensitive care based on the College of Nursing’s philosophy of caring and a commitment to health equity, according to the release. As a part of FAU, the center is a site to enrich student learning, and faculty research and scholarship.
