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.
