***Start Date for first 2019 course – 17 January at 7 pm**
This course will be run over a 6 week period.
Once a week there is a Skype webinar on Type 2 diabetes covering all the information you will need to be able to work with your healthcare team to effectively manage your diabetes or avoid your pre-diabetes becoming Type 2 diabetes. If you are prevented from attending the seminar live we can arrange for you to watch the recording, but you will get far more benefit from participating in the group discussion live.
You will also have access to a Facebook-based online support group where you will be encouraged to post what goals you have set yourself and receive support and feedback as you work towards achieving those goals.
The course is run by Helen Gibbs Dietitian and meets the standards of care outlined for diabetes education in Quality Standards for Diabetes Care (Ministry of Health 2014)
At the end of the course, there will be opportunities to enter one of the following programs or support groups
- Maintaining lifestyle changes program
- Diabetes reversal program
- Support group for people with pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes.
