Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Are you an older adult with diabetes? Then you may be interested in “Better Choices, Better Health — Diabetes,” a free online workshop from the National Council on Aging.

Developed at Stanford University, the six-week sessions consist of about 25 people per workshop gathering on a dedicated Web site along with trained peer educators to make weekly action plans, problem solve, and take part in various self-tests and activities.

Participants are asked to log in at least three times a week at their convenience for a total of about two hours to access educational diabetes content through the Learning Center, interact with other members, fill in logs, and more. New content is made available in the Learning Center each week, and all content from the previous weeks remains available.

The workshop is designed for people with Type 2 diabetes, but those with Type 1 may also find it helpful.
