Print Info

This six-week evidence-based program was developed by Stanford University, and is designed to address day-to-day challenges for those living with diabetes. People closest to those living with diabetes are also invited to attend.

Julie Cooke has been with the Health Initiative for the past 6 years and is new to the position of coordinator for both the “Diabetes Prevention Program” and the “Diabetes Self-Management Program,” which help create a better life for those living with diabetes. She has witnessed first-hand how participants of the “Living Better with Diabetes” course gain a great deal of knowledge, whether they are newly diagnosed or have been living with diabetes for a length of time.

Heidi Czerepak has been with the Health Initiative for the past year as an intern. She is currently pursuing her Master’s Degree in Community Health. Recently, Heidi has agreed to come aboard per diem, and she is very excited to be involved with the “Diabetes Self-Management Program.”

NOTE: There is a break each day; snacks are provided.
