Diabetes-Personal Action Toward Health (D-PATH) is a six-week workshop that helps people 50 and up map out a plan to help manage their type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes PATH Is Different

Lots of organizations offer diabetes management classes, and you may have taken a workshop or class in the past. But D-PATH is different. It focuses on helping you find the tools and techniques that will work for you and your lifestyle. Trained instructors will help you explore different management strategies and options and map out an action plan just for you.

Classes will help you:
