“When people are diagnosed with diabetes or have uncontrolled diabetes, they may feel overwhelmed or not know where to start to improve their health. The Diabetes Education Program at Macon Community Hospital is a great starting point for a strong foundation of knowledge and skills to make healthy lifestyle changes to manage diabetes.

If you would like to attend the Diabetes Education Program, which includes a diabetes class for diabetes management and one-on-one session for individualized meal planning and goal setting, please talk to your physician about providing a referral to our program.

For continued education about diabetes management, we also offer a free Diabetes Support Group with guest speakers related to different components of managing diabetes. We meet on the 4th Monday of each month in the Macon Community Hospital Conference Room, and would love for you to join us!”
