Fairfield Medical Center

Diabetes Self-Management Education Program

One million Ohioans live with diabetes, which is the fifth-leading cause of death in the state. Fairfield Medical Center has developed a comprehensive diabetes self-management program and a diabetes support group to serve community residents living with this disease. The Diabetes Self-Management Education Program at Fairfield Medical Center has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association as a nationally qualified program for Diabetes Self-Management Education. Fairfield Medical Center’s Diabetes Self-Management Education Program is a series of classes that address issues such as: exercise, carbohydrate counting, medications and insulin, managing sick days and long-term effects of poorly controlled blood sugar.

Fairfield Medical Center’s team of experts is here to help you manage your diabetes. Appointments with a member of the diabetes team can be made by calling Fairfield Medical Center Central Scheduling at (740) 687-8666. A physician referral is necessary for reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance.

Diabetes Support Group

This group is open to any community members or their families who are affected by diabetes.

See the schedule on reverse for details or call (740) 687-8492 for more information.
