Diabetes Education

There are two different programs for anyone who wants to learn to self-manage diabetes. Both programs focus on the same topics, but in a different manner. The topics are:
  • Healthy eating
  • Being active
  • Monitoring
  • Taking medication
  • Problem solving
  • Healthy coping
  • Reducing risks
One option is the six-week Diabetes PATH group workshop that meets once a week for 2 ½ hours in a community setting. Two trained facilitators offer participants information on how to manage their diabetes. The second option is the AADE7 group workshop for persons that have Medicare Part B, led by a Registered Dietitian that meets for two hours each week for five weeks. The Registered Dietitian will also meet one-on-one with participants to work on particular areas of concern (such a high cholesterol, creating a healthy eating plan, managing stress, etc.), all billable through Medicare Part B.
