Our diabetes management program was developed to provide support to COPC patients living with
pre-diabetes and diabetes.
Through our detailed and dynamic education, you will be given the tools you need to better
manage your pre-diabetes or diabetes and become empowered to enjoy life.
If you are a COPC patient that has pre-diabetes or diabetes and would like to learn more
about managing it, please contact your COPC physician to be referred to our program.
To participate in our program, you will need to have a physician referral.
This is because our team will partner with your physician to track your progress and work with your
health insurance company. To determine if your insurance plan will cover our classes, we recommend
that you contact your insurer directly.

Diabetes Management Steps to Success
After obtaining your physician referral, you will need to fill out the questionnaire we sent you and bring it to the first class.
Additionally, if you are not currently testing your blood sugar at home, you will need to learn how to at the first class.
If you have any questions about obtaining a glucose meter, please give us a call and we can help you.
Over the span of 4 weeks, you will attend a class once per week lasting 2 hours each. For each class, we encourage you to bring a
support person with you (at no charge). After you have completed the series of classes,
your doctor will receive a copy of your progress note describing your educational sessions.
3 months after completing the classes, you will need to schedule a follow-up appointment with your physician and
have completed a hemoglobin A1C. At any point, feel free to call us with any questions you may have and
schedule additional follow-ups as needed.
