The Living Well with Diabetes comprehensive education program is now offered twice a month — for free!  Taught by our Certified Diabetes Educator, Shelby Jaedicke, RN, MSN, and Michelle Dohrman, registered and licensed dietician, the program begins with two 3-hour core sessions, focusing on proper nutrition using carbohydrate counting, exercise, blood glucose monitoring, foot care, and other topics.  

Additional monthly sessions cover special topics including Dining Out with Diabetes, Strength Training, Eating for Heart Health, Diabetes and Stress, and much more!  A monthly grocery store tour is included in the program, as well as a one-month membership with the St. Joseph Wellness Center.  All sessions are held in the St. Joseph Professional Building, Suite 140 Classroom, on the St. Joseph Regional Health Center campus.

Pre-registration is required.
