The core diabetes team of SDUIH consists of our three Care Managers.  Each team member is qualified to perform diabetes education and meets yearly continuing education credit hours on diabetes related material.  Each member is active in different diabetes organizations across the country.

  • A care manager is available at each clinic location
    • Pierre Clinic: Jami Larson, RN, CDE 
    • Aberdeen: Amanda Keefe, RN
    • Sioux Falls Clinic: Lezlie Vilhauer, LPN
  • Amanda Keefe, RN is the diabetes coordinator for the program and is located in Aberdeen.  Amanda is readily available by phone, email, and travels to the other sites on a needed basis.
