Diabetes Self-Management Education

Our approach to diabetes self-management and nutritional counseling is simple. We are dedicated to working with patients and families to prevent and manage diabetes through lifestyle coaching. We will work to promote self-management skills to improve quality of life in each patient, and we provide counseling to ensure patients are comfortable and confident in managing their diabetes. Our education is individualized, patient centered, goal-oriented, and focuses on behavioral changes. We give our patients the time and energy needed to understand and take control of their diabetes.

Managing diabetes can be complex, and many people find it challenging to handle without guidance. St. John’s diabetes education program can provide you with the tools and self confidence to control your diabetes so it doesn’t control you.
