  • Please register with the front desk and let us know you are coming.

  • Important reminder.

Each class covers different material and “flows” from day 1, so it is vital to start the classes on day 1. Therefore, it is important to make every attempt to come for each class!  Example, if you do not make it to the initial class and show up for the 2nd or 3rd, you will miss important content that leads into the next classes.

P.S. Don’t forget, individual diabetes counseling available.  Just ask front desk staff.

We look forward to seeing you and helping you reach your diabetes goals!
