To receive diabetes education, your physician must fill out a referral form. When you have been accepted, we will notify you of the class schedule. We offer both day and evening classes.
We offer classes for people who are not insulin dependent, and those who are taking insulin.
Our primary goal is to teach people with diabetes, and their family members, the importance of lifelong diabetes care. Our program stresses prevention of complications, and to show that diabetes is a manageable disease.
The class format is based on the International Diabetes Center requirements and is recognized by the American Diabetes Association. Please call 304-598-4391 and press #1 for Connie Kyle to find out most current class schedule.
