About Us

The DSME program at the Charlestown HealthCare Center begins with a comprehensive individual visit with a diabetes nurse educator. Participants may then proceed to a series of group education sessions or one-on-one visits facilitated by a diabetes educator.  Participants are also able to attend a hands-on cooking classes taught by a trained chef where they will learn how to prepare a diabetic friendly recipe, help prepare their own lunch and receive the recipe to try at home.  Patients are encouraged to bring a family member or friend for support
