Tens of thousands of people nationwide have learned the self-management approach to their diabetes. This group lowered their blood sugar, made fewer trips to the emergency department, and were less likely to end up in the hospital because of diabetes - even a year later. Just as important are the changes people report in how they feel about their lives: effective, in charge, and able to do what matters most to them.

Diabetes Self-Management doesn't replace your diabetes treatment plan - far from it. It teaches you the best ways to work with your doctor and your family, and helps you set your own goals for managing your condition and controlling your life.

The changes you see are things that matter most to you. You will learn hands-on with others as the group brings fun and wisdom as you apply new skills in your own life!

FREE Diabetes Self-Management workshops are six weekly, 2 1/2-hour sessions all focused to help your manage your conditions, become more active, and have more energy.
