Diabetes Education Center Teaches Lifesaving Skills

If you have diabetes, you know how overwhelming it can seem just to stay healthy. You’ve had to change your eating habits, add exercise to your routine and learn how to check your blood sugar levels using a blood glucose monitor.

The Diabetes Education Center at Bridgeport Hospital offers men and women with diabetes one-on-one and group sessions to help manage daily physical and lifestyle requirements— the lifesaving skills many need in order to avoid complications. Our caring certified educators (registered nurse and registered dietitian) provide specialized care and education. Programs include Medical Nutrition Therapy and Diabetes Self-Management Training.

The programs are recognized by the American Diabetes Association for meeting the highest national standards of care for adults with diabetes.
