At Kaweah Health we offer a number of services for people with diabetes including free support groups, free classes and one-on-one services available at our Outpatient Diabetes Center. At the outpatient diabetes center, patients can receive counseling and treatment for diabetes. If you have recently been diagnosed with the disease, we offer numerous educational programs to help you adjust to a new, healthier lifestyle. Patients can be seen one-on-one with an educator or in group classes depending on their insurance and patient preference. We encourage family members to attend also.
