Diabetes Education Classes

Join us for our nationally certified education courses and gain a better understanding of diabetes and learn how to put healthier lifestyle choices into action.  This 9 week nationally certified diabetes education course is presented by a registered dietitian, pharmacist, and certified diabetes nurse educator.  This class will benefit anyone who is newly diagnosed with diabetes, has developed an additional simultaneous condition, or needs a a change in managing their conditions(s).

Our program is the only 9 week course taught by a registered nurse, registered dietitian and pharmacist each week, and compared to a one time, 3 hour class, attending our course supports improved information retention and understanding.  Attendees will also benefit by having ample time to implement the education and address any struggles prior to the ending of the class.

*Medicare/Medicaid covers up to 10 hours of diabetes self-management education during the first year of diagnosis and allows for annual continuing education as needed. Most insurance companies have similar coverage, be sure to check with your insurance provider on Medical Nutrition Therapy, CPT Code: MNT-97804 and Diabetes Self Management Education, CPT Code: DSME-G0109.

Please call Troy Bailey at 885-5932 or tbailey@starvalleyhealth.org for more information. 

* The cost of the class is $309, but this cost is covered by most insurances, at least partially if not entirely.  If you are uninsured, you may apply for financial assistance with our financial planners to receive a discount and / or to set up a payment plan.  Please contact your insurance to determine your coverage or our financial planners for payment assistance.

‘Stop The Bleed’ Class

No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene.  A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss.  With this in mind, SVH will offer ‘Stop the Bleed” classes that teach bleeding control basics.  Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action – those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.  This program is intended to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.  Please contact Colleen David  at cdavid@starvalleyhealth.org or for more information on class availability.
