Did You Know That …

  • The ADA Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes recommends that all adults with Type 2 diabetes be assessed and referred for diabetes self-management education and support on an annual basis after having completed an initial program for education.
  • Medicare part B will cover 2 hours annually for their members to receive ongoing education and support. Private payers vary, but most will cover annual visits based on plan specific criteria.
  • Most Medicare clients don’t take advantage of this paid benefit.
  • Group session format is ideal for sharing, support and learning from others.

This year we are offering this annual “refresher” in a group class setting at our Cosner Corner location:

Tuesday, September 27
9:30 a.m.–11:00 a.m.

In this interactive session with Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, Jody Long, RD CDCES, you will be breaking down the sections of the nutrition facts panel and discussing some food label terms and health claims you might find on the front of the food package as well.

You can be assured that Jody will keep it interactive, fun and educational!

If you are interested, call our office at 540.741.2210 and either Gitte or Katie can assist you in registering for the class. Space is limited, so don’t delay!

If you have Medicare, you will qualify if you have not used any Medicare hours in 2022 and have already utilized your initial 10 hour benefit.
