This class meets the fourth Tuesday of every other month from 3:00-5:00pm at our West Washington clinic.

Many insurance plans cover all or a portion of the class. The Diabetes Care Team specialists are available upon referral from a primary care physician or other any other treating medical provider. Call your provider or ask at your next appointment.

You can find out more about the Meriter Diabetes Care Team and upcoming classes by calling (608) 417-2090.

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.

To register for this class, call (608) 417-2090. Online registration for this class is not available.
