2018 Diabetes Resource Program Annual Refresher Class

The Diabetes Education Resource Program at Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Brainerd Clinic invites you to register for Diabetes Refresher class on November 27 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at 2024 S. Sixth Street in Brainerd.

If you have not had diabetes education in 2018, and are not seeing an educator now, you are eligible to take a refresher class. Diabetes Refresher class will help you identify 7 key habits to managing diabetes well, describe common challenges to managing diabetes, discuss when to seek additional help and education, and develop one to two personal diabetes self-care goals.

Medicare allows two hours of diabetes follow-up education each year. Other insurances may vary. If you have private insurance, we encourage you to check on coverage for diabetes self-management prior to the course. The course will be billed to your insurance.

To register please call Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Brainerd Clinic at 218-828-7100 and ask to register for the DIABETES REFRESHER.
