Diabetes Education

We are pleased to offer diabetes education classes to help you and your family learn more about managing your diabetes from a Certified Diabetes Educator. You can meet individually with an educator to discuss your personal situation and then complete three two-hour group sessions. All education is provided virtually.

Topics covered in class include:

  • Blood glucose monitoring
  • Insulin and oral medication administration skills
  • Nutrition counseling and meal planning
  • Continuous glucose monitoring (as ordered by your doctor)
  • Insulin pump training
  • How to manage on days when you aren’t feeling well
  • How to recognize signs of high or low blood sugar and what to do about each
  • How to safely care for your feet

A physician referral is required to participate and most insurance plans are accepted.

Take control of your diabetes… knowledge is power!
