Type 2 and You

Successful Living with Diabetes

We understand that having diabetes is hard, and that it is a challenge to filter through all of the diabetes "information" that is out there. Whether you have had diabetes for 20 years or more, or having diabetes is brand new to you, this program can help you!

Program Features:

  • Interactive, practical sessions that involve more doing than listening.
  • Optional grocery store tour that provides hands-on practice buying healthy food.
  • Problem solving practice with real world diabetes challenges.
  • Time with a behavioral health professional to work on ways to cope with the stress that comes with having diabetes.

 

The Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center Successful Living with Diabetes Program has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association for quality Self-Management Education and is facilitated by a multidisciplinary team of nurses, dietitians and behavioral health professionals.

This program is covered by most insurance plans, but requires a referral from a medical provider.  To register for an upcoming program, please call 503.346.0428.
