Diabetes Map

This class teaches diabetes self-management by increasing awareness and understanding of diabetes and its risk factors. 

Diabetes Map workshops are interactive classes — led by a facilitator with participants doing most of the talking. It's an engaging way to learn as you share ideas, ask questions and help one another to use effective self-management strategies that prevent diabetes complications. 

Classes are available for all ages, for individuals living with diabetes, and those interested in learning how to prevent diabetes. This class is available in English and Spanish.

This class is FREE and OPEN to everyone!
