Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSME):
For individuals who are already diagnosed with type II diabetes, DSME is an evidence-based group education program focused on providing participants with the tools and information they need to take control of their chronic condition and live a healthy life. Each participant will be able to meet one on one with a registered dietitian to develop a personalized plan of care focused on their own goals and connect with others who face similar challenges in managing their condition.
Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP):
For individuals who are diagnosed with pre-diabetes, or are at risk of developing diabetes, DPP is an evidence-based group education program that has been shown to reduce the risk of developing type II diabetes by upwards of 50%.
