Diabetic Education

The goal of the Outpatient Diabetes Education Program is to provide information about diabetes you need to set yourself on a course of good health and self-management.

Here is what you can expect if you join our program:

  • One on one and group appointments to individualize your plan of care and enhance your learning
  • Follow up for one year to support you in reaching your goals
  • Luncheons to share your successes with the group
  • A healthier you for taking control of your diabetes

For more information, please call Tracy Stadler, RD, LD, CDCES at 419-732-4047.

Diabetes Classes

Classes are filled with information about the disease of diabetes and how to manage activities around diabetes. You are encouraged to bring a family member or friend who is closely involved in your daily activities so that they may share in the education process. You will receive a custom tailored, individual plan, so we ask that you complete a General Health Assessment form which will be provided prior to your fist appointment.

The program consists of six sessions. The initial 2 sessions are individual appointments with the nurse and the dietitian. During the first visit, staff will show you how to assess your blood sugar, weight, feet and lower extremities. This is followed by 3 group sessions and one follow up group session. The Diabetes Educators will contact you to schedule appointment times. Class size is limited and two contact attempts will be made before the referral is sent back to the physician.

Please contact Amanda Chaney, RN, BSN, CDCES, Diabetes Nurse Educator, before class at 419-734-3131 ext. 3371 with any concerns or questions.
