Diabetes Education

Emory’s Outpatient Diabetes Education and Nutrition Services Program is proud to offer self-management classes built around the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) "7 self-care behaviors". Classes aim to promote and teach people with diabetes to be active, to eat healthily, to practice daily monitoring, how to take medication, to reduce risks, to problem solve and to develop healthy coping habits for successful diabetes management.

Group classes and one-on-one sessions are available.

Classes and individual visits are led by our multispecialty team, which includes Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE), Registered Nurses (RN) and Registered Dietitians (RD). Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Endocrinologists offer support and guidance for the program and classes. Our program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association for providing patients with the tools and habits they need to avoid long-term complications and successfully control diabetes.

Our licensed dietitians can help people with a variety of conditions learn the nutritional and meal planning skills they need to lead a healthier lifestyle. In addition to diabetes, we see people with kidney disease, cardiovascular conditions, gastrointestinal issues, obesity and weight gain, unexpected weight loss, and others.

We offer appointments and classes at several Emory Healthcare locations:
