The Rothenberg Center for Family Life offers Diabetes Self-Management Education & Support Program

Posted on October 28, 2020

Are you or a loved one affected by diabetes or other health-related conditions? Then, plan to join a free six-week Diabetes Self-Management Education & Support Program provided by the Jewish Family Service Village by the Shore and The Rothenberg Center for Family Life.

Every Wednesday from November 4 through December 16 from 1pm to 3:30pm, you’ll participate in a virtual zoom workshop to gain knowledge, skills and confidence to lead a healthier life. Attendees will learn how to manage symptoms, communicate effectively with healthcare providers, improve eating, exercise habits and more. A hallmark of the program is that participants learn from one another. As previous program attendees shared:

“I learned and accomplished some key principles of healthy eating and how important it is for me to incorporate these new principles which have shown me how to keep my blood sugar levels normal.” - Karen

“I highly recommend this program for any diabetic or pre-diabetes patient. The skills presented are an invaluable aid to living healthy with a chronic disease.” - Dianne

“I am better able to handle my diabetes, both physically and mentally, with the pointers discussed in class. For six weeks, it has been a life-changing experience, which I look forward to keeping for many years. It’s a wonderful course.” - Sam

The evidence-based workshop was developed by the Stanford University Patient Education Research Center and licensed by the State of New Jersey. Participants will receive a book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, to help manage diabetes within the context of their lifestyle.
