Self-management education is the cornerstone of treatment for all people with diabetes. At the UT Health Henderson Diabetes Education Outreach Center, our goal is to equip and inform you, so you can effectively manage diabetes and live a healthy life.
Our program is designed to assist and instruct Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes patients. We use a multi-disciplinary team approach, which includes your personal physician; a registered nurse/certified diabetes educator and a dietitian.

Class topics include:
- General facts on diabetes mellitus
- Oral agents and insulin
- Nutritional management
