Continued Support for a Healthier Lifestyle
The Diabetes Self-Management Program is for anyone, referred by their physician, with Type II diabetes and their family members. We are dedicated to the program’s mission:
Recognizing that diabetes is a chronic disease that is best managed by the individual, we serve to assist participants in translating diabetes knowledge into improved self care.
Topics learned in this program include:
- An Overview of Diabetes
- Diabetes Medications
- Foot Care
- Managing High and Low Blood Sugars
- Monitoring Blood Glucose
- Nutritional Management
Upon completion of the course, participants will have yearly follow-ups with the instructor, or more frequently as needed. The Diabetes Self-Management Program is held twice a month, during the second and fourth weeks of the month.
