Diabetes Education

Each class covers a different topic, offers opportunities to ask questions, and the group setting allows participants to share tips and learn from each other. Topics covered include weight loss, exercise, meal planning and portion sizes, medications, motivation, and preventing diabetic complications.

Talk with your UMC health care provider about signing up for classes, or call (205) 348-1224 and speak with Kim McMillan, LPN.
