The Atlantic General Diabetes Center at Atlantic General Hospital will be offering diabetes self-management education classes in May 2019.
The series of four, two hour sessions will address blood glucose monitoring, foot care, nutrition, exercise, and other self-management skills to help individuals better manage their diabetes. A family member is invited to attend. The program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for quality education, and program staff includes a Registered Nurse (who has diabetes) and a Registered Dietitian, both of whom are Certified Diabetes Educators.
Advance registration and a referral from your primary care provider(which the program can obtain) are required.
Diabetes Self-Management is a Medicare benefit and the cost of the classes is covered by most insurances.
