Our Diabetes Education program is designed for people who want to learn more about their diabetes, practical suggestions for living with diabetes, and how to keep themselves well. We focus on what is important to our participants and encourage questions and individual goals. Please feel free to bring a family member or friend along when you meet with us.
Our outpatient diabetes education program provides both individual and group class instruction. All of the education is provided by diabetes educators who are either registered dietitians or registered nurses. We also offer individual appointments with a registered dietitian to develop individualized meal plans for people with diabetes.
With the exception of our support group meetings, referrals and appointments are required. The Good Samaritan Hospital Diabetes Self-Management Education Program has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education*.
The American Diabetes Association recognizes this education service as meeting the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.
