Kelsey-Seybold Clinic offers three outstanding education programs to help you manage your diabetes. Your doctor may recommend these programs to you. We have Diabetes Education Classes, Certified Diabetes Educators and Registered Dietitians that can provide you with the information and motivation you need to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Diabetes Education Classes
Classes provide an overview of diabetes, monitoring blood sugars, taking medications, meal planning and exercising to help patients minimize or avoid diabetes-related complications. These classes will help you gain the motivation needed to make important lifestyle changes.
A series of three classes lasting approximately two hours will be held during the first three weeks of each month.
You may start during any of the first three weeks of the month.
We strongly encourage you to attend all three classes.
