Class 1 - Diabetes: The Basics

Starting in January 2018, the diabetes education classes will be offered in a 4-part series. Class 1 is required to be taken before the
others in the series. If you have diabetes, these classes will be helpful in teaching you the skills to manage your diabetes — whether
you are newly diagnosed, in need of a refresher, have elevated A1c or blood sugar levels, have had a recent change in diabetes
treatment, are new to Kaiser Permanente, or if you have not attended diabetes education classes within the past 2 years. It is highly
recommended to take the classes in the order listed. The book that is used for the classes is given in Class 1.
