What Will I Learn?

The Real World Diabetes Program is a series of four classes that last between 1.5 to 2 hours each. The classes cover topics such as diet, exercise and managing diabetes.

  • Starting Line: The first step to managing your diabetes is understanding what it is and what causes it. This class will explain all of this in an easy to understand way.
  • What’s Cooking: We’ll help you develop a diet that may work for you by showing you how to read food labels, count carbohydrates, and control your portion sizes.
  • Dining with Diabetes: We’ll build on the food knowledge you’ve already developed and help you improve your meal plan and address the challenges of eating out and consuming alcohol.
  • My Life on the Go: Leading an active life is a crucial part of managing diabetes. This class will show you how to get up and get moving. 
What Are Classes Like?

We keep classes small and include a lot of “hands-on” activities so you can easily understand what you’re learning. There are no tests and no pressure, but we encourage you to ask questions and take notes. Often, participants find they learn as much from their classmates as they do from their teachers. 

Who Teaches the Classes?

Each class is taught by a Temple Certified Diabetes Nurse Educator. Visit our team page to learn more about our educators.
