The Diabetes Self-Management Program is a nationally recognized diabetes program developed at the Stanford Patient Education Research Center.

Participants that have completed this program were found to lower their A1C as well as decrease their diabetes related symptoms.

This program is for people that have diabetes or have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic or live with someone that has diabetes. Do not miss out on this opportunity! Call today and register for the program at 573-603-1460.
