Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) Classes

Diabetes education will help you learn how to manage your diabetes and be as healthy as possible by focusing on seven self-care behaviors including: healthy eating, being active, monitoring, taking medication, problem solving, healthy coping and reducing risks.

In addition to group classes, physicians can refer patients for one-on-one education on specific topics such as insulin training and continuous glucose monitoring.

Sweet Success Program: Diabetes in Pregnancy

As an affiliate of the Sweet Success California Diabetes and Pregnancy Program (CDAPP), our program offers comprehensive preconception, prenatal and post-partum education to pregnant women with diabetes or who develop diabetes during pregnancy.

Group and/or individual instruction on meal planning, glucose meter use and diabetes care are provided. Each patient will be individually monitored throughout pregnancy by a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist.

Medical Nutrition Therapy can play a life changing role in reducing complications with some chronic diseases, including diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure and more.

Through individualized appointments with registered dietitians, patients are empowered with the knowledge, skills and resources needed to manage their health condition effectively, optimize their nutritional choices and improve their overall quality of life.
