Most individuals with diabetes find it’s not a body-friendly condition. Diabetes requires changes in eating habits, exercise, medications, insulin monitoring, emotional changes, and making this lifestyle a lifelong commitment.

Morning series of classes are held from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Tuesday and Wednesday. Afternoon series of classes are held 1:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday and evening series of classes are held from 5:45 p.m.- 9:15 p.m., on the same days.
