Great River Health Systems offers diabetes classes in November

Nov 16, 2017

WEST BURLINGTON — Great River Diabetes Education Program offers four-week group diabetes classes every month. The next morning series will be from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursdays beginning Nov. 16. Afternoon classes are on Mondays from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. beginning Nov. 27.

Group diabetes classes are for people newly diagnosed, making a change in treatment, or having complications or concerns. A physician referral for diabetes education is required.

Class topics include proper eating for diabetes, managing blood sugar, medicines, diabetes-related health problems and exercise.

Diabetes educators will assess needs for specific information and skills, teach self-care and provide continuing help. Most insurance companies cover the fee for the class series. A family member or friend is encouraged to attend at no additional cost.

The American Diabetes Association has awarded the Diabetes Education Program with its Education Recognition Certificate for high-quality diabetes self-management.
