Diabetes is a complex disease requiring you to make healthy lifestyle choices every day. Those choices include eating healthy foods, staying physically active, checking your blood sugar and taking your prescribed medications.
Our Approach to Diabetes Education
Through successful management of diabetes, you can feel better and lessen your risk of diabetes complications.
We offer Diabetes Self-Management Education classes at our medical centers in Elmer, Vineland and Woodbury. Inspira is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for quality self-management education.
Participants attend group or individual classes depending on preference, insurance guidelines and the individual’s needs. A physician’s/health insurance referral is required. Diabetes Self-Management Education is a billable service that will be applied to your insurance. If you do not have insurance, please ask to speak with a program instructor. No one will be denied due to insurance status.
