“My A1C went from 7.1% to 6.1% and I lost weight from lifestyle changes. I credit the diabetes self-management classes for this!”

—Martha Yates

“Going to the classes taught me how to read labels on the back of containers and how to portion my foods. I can relate to other people that have diabetes and how they work to control their eating”

—Sheila Nichols
