Living Well With Diabetes Education Program


New, Improved, And FREE!

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.  

Monthly seminars 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 CHI St. Joseph Health Wellness Center.  All sessions are held in the Medical Office Building; 2700 E 29th Street, Suite 140 Classroom, on the CHI St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital campus.

Pre-registration is required.
