Diabetes Education Programs


Bartlett Regional Hospital offers diabetes education appointments to help you understand your health condition and learn to live life with diabetes. Our educators work with you and your medical providers in order to help you control your diabetes so it won’t control you! We offer information about Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, Gestational Diabetes, and Pre-diabetes.

If you have questions or concerns about your diabetes condition, we offer private appointments with a Registered Nurse/Certified Diabetes Educator (RN-CDE) or Registered Dietitian. Ask about appointments with our Endocrinologist.

Pre-Diabetes Education

People with Pre-diabetes can prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

Pre-Diabetes is a condition present in the majority of people BEFORE developing Type 2 diabetes.

The Pre-Diabetes class presents information about pre-diabetes and strategies to avoid developing diabetes.

Though aimed at persons diagnosed with Pre-Diabetes, this class is open to anyone wanting information to avoid diabetes and improve their health.

Most insurance companies do not cover the cost of private appointments for Pre-Diabetes education with the Certified Diabetes Educator or Registered Dietitian. Check with your Health insurance carrier.

There is no cost for 1.5 hours of instruction and materials. Please call 796-8649 to register for the class.
