2019 Diabetes Resource Program Annual Refresher Class

The Diabetes Education Resource Program at Essentia Health invites you to register for a Diabetes Refresher class on November 20 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Brainerd Clinic at 2024 S. Sixth Street in Brainerd.

If you have not had diabetes education in 2019, and are not seeing a diabetes educator now, you are eligible to take a refresher class. The Diabetes Refresher class helps you identify 7 key habits to managing diabetes well, describes common challenges to managing diabetes, provides ways to make healthier meal choices, discusses when to seek additional help and education, and develops 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 ext 2825 and ask to register for the DIABETES REFRESHER.
