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.
