Diabetes Education

Managing your Diabetes Program

Through C. A. Dean's Education & Community Outreach Department, individuals with diabetes can learn how to manage and control this disease through a 10-hour training program.

The program is designed to:

  • Assist persons with diabetes in learning the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior changes necessary to achieve and maintain good diabetes control.
  • Prevent the acute and long-term complications, which result in unnecessary hospitalization for the person with diabetes.
  • Both newly diagnosed and established patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus are eligible for the program


All you need to do is:

  • Get a written physician referral
  • Contact the Diabetes Educator at C. A. Dean (207/695-5220) for a pre-assessment interview
  • Ask for information on class schedules
