Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP)

Live Well with Diabetes is for people with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. This is a free, open to the public, six-week workshop which meets for two and a half hours weekly and is led by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with diabetes themselves. The program teaches self-management techniques for participants, including:

  • What to eat 
  • Foot care
  • Low and high blood sugar
  • Guidelines for when you’re sick
  • Tips for dealing with stress
  • How to set small and achievable goals

Participants will make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program. There are 8-16 participants per workshop.
