Our program is designed to help patients -- and their primary care provider -- understand their conditions related to diabetes through education, medication, monitoring, nutrition and exercise recommendations. These behaviors can be hard to start, but research has shown that even small changes can lead to helpful improvements. Our team offers comprehensive diabetes care in including nutrition, podiatry, ophthalmology, cardiology, and dental services.

The education program aims to enhance diabetes self-care knowledge and skills, support behavioral change, promote general health, and reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes. This can include individual visits with endocrinologists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, pharmacists and dietitians. Patients can also find support by participating in the Conversation Maps program. Patients may just be seen in the group, individually, or in both settings.

Get involved in the Conversation Maps for Diabetes Education to learn more about diabetes and how to manage it. Courses are often paired with a cooking demonstration and tasting.

Boston Medical Center offers individual as well as group classes for diabetes. Our diabetes education classes are a four class series. Classes begin every other month with a new class each week on Thursdays for four weeks.
