Diabetes Education Program

This program helps people recognize the signs and symptoms to determine if they, or someone they know, might have diabetes. Education on diabetes management is offered in a relaxed setting, and offers information on the treatment and management of diabetes, including how it's treated, meal planning, the importance of exercise and maintaining a healthy weight, and preventing possible complications. 

Why it Matters: 

Diabetes can lead to major complications such as kidney damage, nerve pain, infections and blindness if not managed properly. We can help you or your loved one manage this condition and maintain your health.
