Diabetes Education at St. John Providence Health System
Why Is Diabetes Education So Important?
Diabetes education, also called diabetes self-management training, gives people with diabetes the knowledge, skills and tools they need to partner with their physician and other health care providers to successfully manage their diabetes and avoid many of the complications associated with the disease. Since 99% of diabetes is self-care, self-management education is crucial. (AADE 2004)
St. John Health Diabetes Outpatient Education Programs are recognized and certified by the American Diabetes Association. Medicare, Medicaid, and several other commercial/private insurance providers cover costs. A physician's order is required for reimbursement.
