Diabetes Education Programs
The Power to Control Diabetes Is In Your Hands
Managing diabetes is a lifetime commitment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy life while monitoring your condition. Our diabetes program is the largest in Genesee County with classes recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and certified by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). Our diabetes educators can help put the power to control diabetes back in your hands through programs that focus on self-management. Trained nurses and dietitians provide you with the tools, education and support you need to feel better and lower your risk for serious health problems.
We offer three different Diabetes Education Programs:
