Professionally Conducted Diabetes Support Classes
Diabetes nurse professionals work with patients to understand the nature of their disease and the actions they can take to manage their conditions through a series of support classes. They include:
Diabetes Basics - This class is designed for those who do not have diabetes education insurance benefits and consists of series of five, one-hour classes which may be used as an introduction to pre-diabetes, diabetes self-care or as a review.
Diabetes Education Program - This class provides very thorough and in-depth diabetes information for patients and their families. It is presented in a combination of one-on-one and small group class settings
Stop the Clock! Pre-Diabetes/Metabolic Syndrome - This class describes pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome. It is intended to help people avoid or postpone a diagnosis of diabetes by learning self-care management techniques and dietary guidelines.
