This two-hour class is designed to help you if you are struggling with the management of your blood sugar, food choices or activity level. The class will serve as a refresher of the basic principals in diabetes self-management, including identifying and overcoming the barriers that are preventing you from meeting your treatment goals. We will help you choose your own positive steps to improve your diabetes control. This class will meet on Tuesday afternoons.

Our ongoing diabetes education classes are taught by the dietitian, diabetes nurse educator and health psychologist. The classes are designed to assist you with developing diabetes knowledge and self-management skills as well as helping with behavior change. In addition, these classes give you the opportunity to expand your support network and to learn from others who are also living with diabetes. Our class sizes are small to allow for supportive group interaction. The content areas included in the classes are those specified in the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.
