Diabetes Self-Management Education Classes

Managing diabetes involves so much more than simply taking a pill. Our self-management classes explain how diabetes affects the body and what behavior and lifestyle changes can help keep it under control. Health educators who specialize in diabetes teach what diabetes is, how to monitor blood glucose, proper nutrition, exercise, medications, goal setting and stress management. Classes are offered as one full day or a series of four weekly sessions, and are taught in English or Spanish.
