Diabetes Education

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to help our patients develop and apply knowledge, skills and behaviors to manage diabetes so they can lead happy and healthy lives.



The Diabetes Self-Management Education Program offered through Palmetto Primary Care Physicians is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). We offer a variety of resources and educational opportunities for the patient with diabetes. Our group Diabetes Self-Management Education class is offered several times a month. Prior to class, patients will complete an assessment with a member of our team over the phone. During the assessment, a group class will be scheduled. The group class covers a variety of topics including AADE’s 7 self-care behaviors:

  • Healthy Eating
  • Being Active
  • Monitoring Blood Glucose
  • Taking Medication
  • Problem Solving
  • Reducing Risks
  • Healthy Coping
