Living With Diabetes
The Living With Diabetes Program has been Recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education. It is based on sound, well-researched information proven to help manage your diabetes better. It offers diabetics an opportunity to participate in a program designed specifically for them. The program has two components; individual and group sessions.
The pre-class individual sessions provide diabetics with one-on-one consultations with a Registered Dietitian and a Registered Nurse.
The group sessions include a full day of activities, taught by the Registered Nurse and Registered Dietitian.
Diabetics will learn self-management skills that may help them live a longer, healthier life, by managing their diabetes better.
