February 23, 2016 – Capital Health – Endocrinology Specialists has partnered with patients and referring primary care providers for more than a decade and continues to grow to help those with diabetes find the help they need.
Capital Health recently introduced Dr. Sunil Thomas to the team of board certified endocrinologists at its Hamilton-based Endocrinology Specialists office.
Joining Drs. Sheri Gillis-Funderburk, Albert Empedrad and Yan Wu at Endocrinology Specialists’ main office in Hamilton, Dr. Thomas has also opened an office in Princeton (Montgomery Commons, 811 Executive Drive, Building 8, Princeton, NJ, just off Route 206).
“Diabetes is a disease that is becoming much more common. But with the help of specialists like Dr. Thomas and by becoming better educated about diabetes, people can lead a healthy life and manage their diabetes before it becomes harder to control,” said Al Maghazehe, president and CEO of Capital Health.
Capital Health’s diabetes self-management education program has also been awarded continued recognition from the American Diabetes Association.
“This recognition means that our team teaches nationally recognized best practices for participants to lead healthier lives by covering topics such as nutrition, exercise, medications, and preventing, detecting, and treating diabetic complications, just to name a few,” said Dr. Sheri Gillis-Funderburk, director of the Capital Health Diabetes Education Program.
