Education and Support
Knowledge is the key to controlling diabetes. Sparrow Diabetes Services offers educational programs at Sparrow Hospital, Sparrow Clinton Hospital, Sparrow Ionia Hospital and Carson City Hospital.
Classes are taught by a nurse educator and a dietitian educator and cover such topics as meal planning, carb counting, exercise, controlling risk factors, and sick day care. Monthly support groups offer another avenue for education and family involvement.
Individual and group classes are available. For your convenience, classes are held during the day and evening. For more information and to register for classes, please call 517.364.5989.
