Diabetes Depot was founded as a private, non-profit public benefit corporation in 2009 by Gail Quinnan.
Gail is a registered nurse (RN) and certified diabetes educator (CDE) whose passion it is to bring simplified, diabetes self-management education to those who may not otherwise have access to the current programs already in place.
Additionally, Gail is a faith community nurse (FCN), a sub-specialty model that recognizes and embraces the integration of people’s spiritual beliefs and customs into their overall sense of health and wellbeing.
Gail and her family have lived locally for over 30 years and she has practiced nursing here for over 23. In addition to founding Diabetes Depot, she is a diabetes education instructor at Los Palos Medical Associates in Salinas and a contracted speaker for Eli Lilly pharmaceuticals. She is an active member of Our Lady of Mt Carmel Catholic Church in Carmel Valley and a volunteer speaker for multiple non-profit groups.
