Atlantic General Hospital to Offer Diabetes Self-Management Education

The Diabetes Outpatient Education Program at Atlantic General Hospital will be offering diabetes self-management education classes in January.

The series of three, three-hour sessions will address blood glucose monitoring, foot care, nutrition, exercise, and other self-management skills to help individuals better manage their diabetes. A family member is invited to attend. The program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for quality education, and program staff includes a Registered Nurse and a Registered Dietitian, both of whom are Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists.

Advance registration and a referral from your primary care provider (which the program can obtain) are required.

Diabetes Self-Management is a Medicare benefit and the cost of the classes is also covered by many insurances.


Classes will be held on the following Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
