Diabetes Education is offered regularly in small group sessions. The program is designed to provide the individual and their family with the beginning skills needed to live successfully with diabetes. The program is designed to supplement regular visits with your primary care provider (PCP), and we do provide follow-up reports to your PCP.
These small, group classes offer a relaxed and informal atmosphere with discussion and questions. A family member or friend is encouraged to attend as well.
Topics in the class include:
The program is presented by registered nurses and registered dietitians, all certified diabetes educators on staff with Martha Jefferson Hospital. Morning, evening and Saturday options are available.
There is a fee for the class that will be billed to all insurance carriers. Preauthorization may be required. Please check with your individual insurance carrier. A physician referral is required for insurance coverage.
