DEEP, The Diabetes Education Empowerment Program is an American Diabetes Association (ADA) Nationally Recognized Education/Training Program. Whether you've just been diagnosed with diabetes or have had it for years, DEEP can help you take charge of your health.
Participants in DEEP have an average hemoglobin A1c of 7.1. Keeping Hemoglobin A1c in the recommended range will prevent complications associated with diabetes.
Fortunately, complications from diabetes can be prevented. Diabetes self-management training combined with powerful personal empowerment means diabetes does not control the patient but rather the patient controls the disease. The "DEEP" team has a passion and commitment to provide personalized diabetes and diabetes prevention education/training. Our expert staff specializes in weight management and weight loss strategies, exercise program development, nutritional trends, expertise in medication therapy, current advances in medical technology and numerous strategies to help individuals have optimal blood glucose control.
To accommodate schedules, initial individual assessments and group classes are offered mornings, afternoons and evenings. The following are encouraged to attend:
