Our outpatient education program is recognized by the AADE (American Association of Diabetes Educators). Our programs are based on the National Standards of Diabetes Self-Management Education.

We're open various hours Monday through Friday, and some Saturday classes. We offer appointments to fit your schedule.

Individual Consults

In these one-on-one sessions, your diabetes educator will help you customize your diabetes plan for a healthy and comfortable new lifestyle. Sessions cover nutrition, exercise, oral medication, insulin, and blood sugar testing.

Group Consults

The small group setting helps people with diabetes learn from and support others to live life fully.

Insulin Initiation Program

If you need insulin, this is your stop -- a comprehensive, hands-on program that puts you in control with knowledge and self-care.

Dose Management Program

If you're taking insulin, you know you need different doses at different times. Certified educators will help you make your diabetes control even better by teaching you more about how insulin works and its adjustments.

Diabetes and Pregnancy Program

Some women enter pregnancy with diabetes. Others develop "gestational diabetes" and become diabetic during pregnancy. This program covers both. Diabetes educators work with you to ensure both your health and your baby's.
