SKN South Asian Diabetes Center
at Saint Peter’s University Hospital: Our Story
The SKN South Asian Diabetes Center at Saint Peter’s University Hospital is a collaborative effort between the SKN Foundation, a local non-profit serving South Asians in the Central Jersey area, and Saint Peter’s University Hospital. This first-of-its-kind one-stop resource center serves all South Asians whose lives are affected by diabetes and chronic diseases. Located in New Brunswick, New Jersey, the heart of Middlesex County, the center was established to serve the growing South Asian population of the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area. Along with free monthly early detection screenings and education events, the center also provides access to the Saint Peter’s University Healthcare System’s award-winning, multidisciplinary care for patients with any ability to pay.
With SKN’s decade-long history of understanding and serving the South Asian population’s needs and Saint Peter’s Healthcare System’s track record of providing expert, valuable care to the most vulnerable, the SKN South Asian Diabetes Center has experience and expertise working with the South Asian community at every level. We know that managing diabetes is a team effort, and are committed to walking with you and your family towards a healthier life.
