Diabetes specialists

Attending a diabetes education course is a very important part of learning how to self-manage your diabetes and avoid long term health complications.

The course is run by our trained educators who will engage and interact with you on your own or as a  group. You will be asked to share more about your personal experiences and challenges in managing your diabetes. The idea is that this will help you develop self-management strategies.

“I would like to say what a fantastic thing that these meetings are. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 years ago and believed that I didn’t have a clue what it meant or how I managed it until today.”
