The Living Healthy with Diabetes Self-Management Education Program is a workshop given two and a half hours, once a week, for six weeks, in community settings such as senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals. People with Type 2 Diabetes attend the workshops, facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are peer leaders with diabetes themselves. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and success build the participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.
