Diabetes is a chronic, lifelong disease that has become more widespread
in the United States; Georgians are not exempt, with incidences of diabetes
30 percent higher than the national average. Southeast Georgia Health
System is committed to increasing awareness and providing comprehensive
diabetes education to our patients, their families and the community.
An important component in controlling diabetes is proper self-care. Fortunately,
residents of Southeast Georgia who have diabetes have access to the Southeast
Georgia Health System Outpatient Diabetes Education Program.
Diabetes Education Program Recognized by the American Diabetes Association
The diabetes education programs at the Southeast Georgia Health System
Brunswick Campus and the Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus
have been Recognized by the American Diabetes Association for providing
Quality Self-Management Education* and Support.
Our diabetes education program provides outpatient diabetes self-management
training in both group and individual appointments at the Brunswick and
Camden campus’. A physician referral is required for participation.
Most insurance companies cover diabetes education, except for copays and/or
deductibles. Financial assistance may be available.
Although diabetes is a very serious disease, it can be kept in check with
healthy eating, exercise and medication. The Health System’s diabetes
education program helps people with diabetes and their families learn
how to cope with this serious disease and stay as healthy as possible.
