Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs

For those who have diabetes, Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) is a key step in improving health and quality of life. DSME focuses on healthy eating, physical activity, and monitoring blood sugar. It is a “team work” approach between the diabetes educators and the person with diabetes. The program will help participants gain the knowledge, problem-solving and coping skills needed to successfully self-manage the diabetes and its related conditions. DSME prevents complications and hospitalizations.
