Diabetes Education

Diabetes Education

The Free Clinics offers diabetes education, specially focused upon living well with diabetes for low-income, uninsured persons.  

Cooking classes, offered quarterly, are “hands-on” and focus on affordable foods, including how to cook healthfully with foods obtained from food pantries.  

Medication management discussions focus how to obtain low-cost medications as well as the importance of taking one’s medications.

Personalized Education

Personalized Diabetes Education sessions are taught by a registered nurse. 

Patients should call Lincoln Balassa, RN diabetes case manager, at 828.697.8422 for more information.
