The 6-week program is designed for people with diabetes and caregivers to learn basic skills necessary to self-manage their diabetes and work effectively with their healthcare professionals.

Classes will be held every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A free screening will be offered at the completion of the last class. Spaces are limited for the 2-hour workship.
