Center for Outpatient Diabetes Education
Covenant Health’s Center for Outpatient Diabetes Education* is dedicated
to teaching people in our region how to manage diabetes and live active,
healthy lives. By providing self-management training and motivation, the
Center helps people with diabetes reduce their risks of developing serious
long-term health complications.
At the Center, each patient becomes part of a Diabetes Management Team
that includes their physician, nurse educators and a dietitian.
Patients participate in “Let’s Do Diabetes Together,”
a recognized program of the American Diabetes Association based on the
National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Training. Through one-on-one
and group instruction, patients get the tools they need to manage their
diabetes. Classes are offered monthly and provide a thorough understanding
of the disease’s progression and treatment options.
To help patients learn from their peers as well as get the perspective
of other people suffering from diabetes, free diabetes support groups
are available in Plainview each month. To join the program, or for more
information, call 806.296.4256.
