  • Prevent complications
  • Monitor blood glucose
  • Plan meals
  • Learn to use and manage insulin

How to get the help you need
If your health care provider has recently diagnosed you with diabetes, you’ll be referred for specialized classes. Or if you’ve had diabetes for a while but would like to learn more, you can call the Diabetes Education Office at 320-864-7761, or toll-free at 1-888-526-4242, ext. 7761.

In some cases, insurance covers diabetes education. In some cases, it doesn’t. But in any case, your investment in your health is worth it. Just be sure to call your insurance company to learn what’s covered.

If you don’t have insurance, or if you can’t afford the sessions, please call the GRHS Business Office at 320-864-7780, or toll-free at 1-888-526-4242, ext. 7780 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday. We can help you set up a payment plan or tell you about other options.

You can have a healthy lifestyle with diabetes. Let us show you how.
