Help your patients take charge of their diabetes!

The Diabetes Age Well Services includes six sessions of evidence-based diabetes group classes and an individualized assessment and education plan co-created with a Registered Dietitian. The curriculum was developed by Stanford University. A physician's referral is required to participate as these are Part B Medicare benefits. 

Our services are accredited by the American Association for Diabetes Educators and follows the 2017 National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support.
