Diabetes is one of the most severe health problems of our time. Our education program is taught by a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES) and registered dietician to help give you insights to effectively manage your diabetes on a day-to-day basis so you can live a healthier life. After completing the program, participants have experienced reduced hemoglobin A1c levels and are more confidence in their ability to manage their diabetes.
