Diabetes Self-Education Management (DSME) Classes

Our ADCES accredited DSME program consists of 12 hours of interactive group classes and individual sessions. Group class topics include the ADCES 7 self-care behaviors- healthy coping, healthy eating, being active, taking medication, monitoring, reducing risk, and problem solving. Freebies, give-a-ways, and visits from local diabetes experts make the classes fun and relatable. Each patient receives 2 individual sessions to tailor a plan specific to their diabetes goals. The goal is to help our patients form the framework to support informed decision making and create successful behavior change using self-determined goals.
