Unfortunately, diabetes affects nearly 10 percent of our adult population in the local area (higher in Sussex and Worcester). It’s a topic that needs to be discussed! Millions of people around the world live with diabetes or know someone living with diabetes. The Diabetes Education Program at Peninsula Regional Health Center offers a comprehensive program of group and individual educational sessions for people with diabetes. The Diabetes Self-Management Program meets the criteria and is recognized by the American Diabetes Association, and the program is made up of certified diabetes educators, nurses, and registered dietitians.
