Diabetic Education

The Holton Community Hospital Diabetic Education provides both group and individual education classes to people with diabetes and their family members or care givers. Self-Management education is an essential component of diabetes treatment. Our staff includes a RN nurse educator who is a Certified Diabetes Educator or CDE and a registered dietitian.

The Diabetes Education Program has been awarded continued Recognition from the American Diabetes Association. The program was originally recognized In May 2003 and has been offering diabetes education opportunities since 2001. The American Diabetes Education Recognition effort is a voluntary process which assures that approved education programs have met the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs. Programs that achieve Recognition status have a staff of knowledgeable health professional that can provide state-of -the art information about diabetes management for participants.
