Diabetes Education

Louise Marshall Hospital and Palmerston and District Hospital offer a wide range of services for adult patients that have Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational diabetes.

Through this education program, patients learn about diabetes and what steps they can take to stay healthy (diet, exercise/activity and medication options).

The Diabetes Education Centre supports inpatients as well as outpatients. If you have been recently diagnosed or have had diabetes for a long time and you would like to receive further education, please ask your family physician to send a referral to us with recent lab work and any medications that you are currently taking. 

You can also fill out a self-referral form

Please check the event calendar for upcoming Diabetes Education Classes that will be offered.
