Diabetes Education and Training Classes
Take charge of your health by learning techniques to manage diabetes. Our accredited group and one-on-one classes are held at The University of Kansas Hospital and led by a certified diabetes educator and/or licensed dietitian.
Your primary care physician must refer you to our group and one-on-one classes. Download the referral form. Although one-on-one sessions are covered by Medicaid, group classes are not. Contact your insurance provider for more information.
Individual education sessions
Our diabetes educator and licensed dietitian will help you learn specific diabetes self-management skills, including:
- Medications and administering injections
- Monitoring your blood glucose
- Nutrition management
You'll learn about food choices and how to prepare meals suitable for your condition. Be sure to bring your blood glucose meter and supplies to receive instruction on monitoring your blood glucose.
