Group Education

Each client will meet with a registered dietician or a registered nurse, certified diabetes educator for an individual assessment. Group classes consist of a series of three classes that cover all aspects of diabetes management, from basic information to advanced level skill. You are able to invite one friend or family member to attend at no cost.

Class topics include:

  • What is diabetes?
  • Meal planning, carbohydrate counting
  • Activity and exercise
  • Monitoring your blood sugar
  • Medications
  • Complications
  • Stress and coping
  • Sick day management
  • Traveling with diabetes

Individual Education

Individual sessions will be made available for special circumstances and for using new equipment.

Gestational Diabetes Education

Education for expecting moms will be held every Friday. This will be in a small group setting. Your significant other is encouraged to attend.

Diabetes Community Group

Individuals with diabetes can offer each other support at our diabetes community group. This group allows participants to share their experiences with diabetes, learn from others, and interactively discuss how they live with diabetes. Family members and caregivers are welcome. There is no fee for this group.

For more information visit our Calendar of Events and select "Diabetes" from the Service/Class pulldown menu.
