Certified Diabetes Educator, Joan Booker, provides diabetes education for patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and gestational moms, as well as those women pregnant with Type 2 diabetes. Both classes cover a variety of topics, including an overview of diabetes, treatment options, lab values and goals, dietary management, counting carbohydrates, label reading, eating out, testing your blood sugar and using your meter, chronic complications, physical activity, acute complications, medications, and coping with your disease.

The cost of the program includes materials, meals, plus an additional support person if desired and is often covered by private insurance or Medicare. You must pre-register for these classes at least seven to 10 days in advance. Contact Joan Booker at 272-2323 to sign up.
