Diabetes Self-Management Blog

For a limited time, the National Council on Aging is offering free access to its online diabetes program, Better Choices, Better Health — Diabetes (BCBH — Diabetes).

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 at 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.

To learn more about BCBH — Diabetes, and to sign up for the first available workshop, click here.

  1. I participated in Better Choices Better Health for chronic health conditions and it was very good. One of the action plans I developed for it resulted in better blood glucose management and a lower A1c. I highly recommend it!
