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.

Living Healthy, Living Well with Diabetes 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. This FREE workshop meets 2 1/2 hours, once a week for six weeks.

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.
