Diabetes? Now what?
If you have been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, or glucose intolerance, this program is for you!
You don’t have to do it alone! Let us help you live at your highest possible quality of life and avoid more costly healthcare with our Moving Forward with Diabetes program. You will receive:
- Education about your condition
- One-on-one assessments with our Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE)
- Group educational classes and support
- Coordination with your medical provider
During your first month, you’ll have an individual appointment with our CDE to do an initial assessment and answer any questions you may have.
In the second month, you’ll attend 4 weekly group educational classes where you’ll learn about diet, exercise, medication, management, possible complications, and more in a supportive setting where you can connect with others like you.
In your third and final month, you’ll have another individual appointment with our CDE for assessment and to advise you on how to incorporate all you’ve learned into daily life.
