Classes and Events
This is a class designed to help people with Type 2 diabetes learn more about diabetes and proper self-care. The class is taught by a multidisciplinary team, which includes a registered nurse, clinical pharmacist, and licensed social worker who collaborate with our Providence Medical Group (PMG) primary care providers.
- Diabetes definitions and physiology
- Reducing risks
- Healthy eating
- Being active
- Healthy coping
Classes are currently only available for patients with a PMG primary care provider, and require an appointment. Attendees may bring one support person (spouse, family member, friend, etc.) with them to the class. If your support person also has Type 2 diabetes and has a PMG primary care provider, they should also schedule an appointment in their name so that they can receive class materials and allow class educators to coordinate with their provider.
Please call 425-316-5125 for scheduled times and locations, and to reserve a spot.
A certified representative will be present on site or at the Medicare 101 meetings with information. For accommodation of persons with special needs at Medicare information sessions, call 877-315-3279.
You’ve heard it before: Quitting tobacco use is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. Maybe you’ve been thinking about it for a while. Maybe you’ve even tried to quit before, without success. If you’re ready to try again, this time can be different.When you’re ready to quit Providence can help you with the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking© program., This program has a proven track record in helping people break free and say goodbye to smoking. In two short months you can be tobacco free.
As part of the program, we provide information, motivation and resources. Research suggests that any quitting method is more successful with group support classes, so we include those, too!
If you’ve been smoking for a long time, you may be wondering about the health of your lungs right now, even if you’re ready to quit. Providence offers a low-cost Lung Cancer Screening exam that lets you know where you stand. The low-dose CT scan takes high-resolution pictures of the lungs, allowing detection of abnormal nodules within the lungs, long before they can be detected by traditional x-ray. The scan can reduce mortality due to lung cancer by finding it at its earliest stages, when it is most treatable, and offers the highest probability for a cure.
For more information on our Lung Cancer Screening, call 425-297-LUNG.

A bleeding injury can happen anywhere. We've all seen it happen too often—on the news or in everyday life. Life-threatening bleeding can happen in people injured in serious accidents or disasters. Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder because you know how to STOP THE BLEED®.
The person next to a bleeding victim may very well be the one who’s most likely to save him or her from bleeding to death. By learning how to STOP THE BLEED®, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding once you learn three quick techniques. Take the STOP THE BLEED® training course and become empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency happens.
Our instructors will teach you live—in person, using training materials specially developed to teach bleeding control techniques. They will not only instruct you, they will be available to check your movements as you practice three different bleeding control actions. They will keep working with you until you demonstrate the correct skills to STOP THE BLEED® and save a life.
