Diabetes Self-Management Program
Due to the current COVID-19 community mitigation guidance, in-person Health & Wellness programs may be suspended.
Please contact your local AAA for location-specific information.
The Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) is a 6-week workshop that meets for 2 ½ hours per week and helps older adults self-manage their diabetes.
The program's evidence-based structure relies on the assumption that people with diabetes have similar concerns and problems. They must deal not only with their diabetes but also with the impact that diabetes has on their lives and emotions.
A list of ongoing and upcoming programs can be found below. Interested individuals can register by calling the contact information for the session they are interested in. You may register for a program already in process.
For general information or questions about the Diabetes Self-Management Program, contact your local Area Agency on Aging.
