At the Diabetes Care Center of Johnson Memorial Hospital, our staff will educate you about diabetes self-management techniques. We’ll tailor an individual plan for you that fits your busy schedule. You’ll learn everything you need to know about medications, eating habits, exercise, and blood glucose monitoring. There are opportunities to learn in a class series, or you can meet with us in an appointment where we will focus specifically on your needs.
