Education is the cornerstone of diabetes management. Our Diabetes Education Program provides diabetes self-management education that is consistent, comprehensive, current and easy to understand. The program meets national standards established by the American Diabetes Association for diabetes self-management education.Our team of educators works together with participants and their health care providers.

These sessions may include diabetes disease process and treatment options, healthy eating, exercise, medications, blood glucose monitoring, risk reduction practices, goal setting to promote health, problem-solving for daily living and management of diabetes during pregnancy if needed.
Exercise is an important way for people with diabetes to get or keep their diabetes under control. It can help prevent type 2 diabetes. Our supervised exercise classes will show you how to introduce and maintain exercise in your life. The program is personalized to your needs and abilities and is ongoing.
