Living With Diabetes Education Program

  • Einstein's Living with Diabetes education program teaches people how to manage diabetes through diet, exercise and, if necessary, medications. The program is offered at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and Germantown Community Health Services.

    Recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Health for meeting national diabetes control guidelines, Living with Diabetes is staffed by a team of diabetes experts including certified diabetes educators, dietitians, nurses, pharmacists and physical therapists.

    The team works with people who have diabetes, their families and their primary care physicians to develop safe, effective and personalized diabetes management plans. The certified diabetes educators lead the series of four classes which begins with an individual pre-assessment. A physician referral is required and most health insurance companies cover the cost of the program.

    Also accredited by the American Diabetes Association, the program covers the basics of diabetes, monitoring, hyper and hypoglycemia, nutrition, exercise, foot and skin care, preventing complications, stress, medications, lifestyle changes and community resources.
