Diabetes Combo Class

If you completed Diabetes Combo Class in 2015, you do not need to repeat it in 2016. Refer to your scorecard for individual requirements.

  • Heart Health: This class details how heart disease is related to diabetes. Because the two conditions are so closely linked, it is important to understand what tools you can use to prevent future complications. This class will examine pre-diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, as well as treatment goals and their relationship to diabetes. 
  • Healthy Lifestyles:  This class offers guidance on how to live a healthy, fulfilling life with chronic disease. Topics will include stress and depression management, exercise guidelines and diet.
