It’s not always easy to do those things without some professional guidance.

The Diabetes Self-Management classes are designed to help people with diabetes better monitor and control their condition, improve their health, and reduce their risk of diabetes-related complications—such as nerve or kidney damage.

The classes are taught by registered nurses, certified diabetes educators or registered dietitians. They are held over the course of three or five weeks in the Marian A Conference Room at Nazareth Hospital. You have options for when to attend:

  • On Saturdays, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., for three weeks
  • On weeknights from 5:30 to 9 p.m., for three weeks
  • On weeknights from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., for five weeks

The Diabetes Self-Management classes are part of the Mercy Diabetes Program at Nazareth Hospital, presented in partnership with ABC Diabetes. To learn more about the classes, call 1.877.533.4222.
