Help your patients take charge of their diabetes!

The Diabetes Age Well Services includes six sessions of evidence-based diabetes group classes and an individualization 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 program is accredited by the American Association for Diabetes Educators and follows the 2017 National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support.


Workshops are highly interactive, where mutual support and success build the participants' confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives. 

Topics include: Diabetes Video

  • Healthy eating
