Take charge of your diabetes with confidence. A referral from a health care provider to the Diabetes Wellness Center is all that is needed to start on the road to success. Recognized by the American Diabetes Association for meeting the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management, the diabetes program is designed to help persons with diabetes make the changes needed to manage their diabetes.
The diabetes program is offered at a variety of times and locations. Once a referral is received, a support staff member will call to schedule an initial assessment appointment with a diabetes educator. Participants are encouraged to bring one support person.
The Diabetes and You Program offers the participant in-depth knowledge and skills on the following topics:
