Specialist shows young patient diabetes tools

Covenant Health is committed to leading the way in diabetes education and management in our region. Through individual and group instruction, patients and their families receive the information and motivation they need to enjoy an active, healthy life.

Our services include:

  • Self-management training
  • Diabetes education
  • Group and individual classes
  • Support groups

At the Center for Outpatient Diabetes Education, each patient becomes part of a diabetes management team that includes their physician, nurse educators and a dietitian.

Patients participate in “Let’s Do Diabetes Together,” a recognized program of the American Diabetes Association based on the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Training. Through one-on-one and group instruction, patients get the tools they need to manage their diabetes. Classes are offered monthly and provide a thorough understanding of the disease’s progression and treatment options.

To help patients learn from their peers as well as get the perspective of other people suffering from diabetes, free diabetes support groups are available in Plainview each month. To join the program, or for more information, call 806-296-4256.
