Diabetes Programs

Jumpstart success with diabetes…for FREE!

Learn about diabetes in a friendly way with the Challenge Diabetes Program. CDP explains how diabetes works and what can be done about it in three consecutive weekly meetings. The first explains what diabetes is, what can be done about it, why people become diabetic and the reasons diabetics should not be blamed for having the disease. The next sessions deal with the reasons diet and physical activity affect blood glucose levels and suggest practical ways to make changes “around the edges.”

Participants are welcome to attend programs throughout the year and join a supportive community of people who also battle diabetes.

CDP does not offer professional medical or nutritional advice. Diabetics need individualized care and we direct participants to the licensed practitioners who can provide it.
