The Diabetes Education Program at Hills & Dales Healthcare is accredited by the American Diabetes Association and the Michigan Department of Community Health. Our program can help you learn the knowledge & skills you need to manage your diabetes every day.
The program covers:

Medicare, Medicaid, and many private insurers do cover the cost of diabetes education. A doctor’s order is needed.
The Diabetes Support Group meets monthly, on the third Thursday (except December). This group discusses items such as new recipes, struggles they are having, ideas for other people on how to cope with a new diagnosis, etc. It is for all people who have diabetes and those who care about them.
This group typically meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
The “Freedom From Smoking” Program is taught by a certified facilitator of the American Lung Association. The program consists of 8 sessions each lasting 1.5 hours for 7 weeks. A physician’s referral is required, and it is often covered through Medicare, Medicaid, and insurance carriers.
