Diabetes Education

If you have been affected by diabetes, it is important to have the best information about how to manage your disease. Rockdale Medical Center’s diabetes education team consists of diabetes nurse educators, a registered dietitian, and an exercise physiologist. Our diabetes education program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for quality diabetes self-management education.

We offer several daytime and evening classes. An individual assessment is conducted prior to attending the class. A follow-up is done after completion of the class. A physician referral is required for all educational classes and individual counseling.

Our office will verify insurance coverage and obtain any needed pre-certification to enroll in our programs. For ongoing diabetes education and support, monthly diabetes support group meetings are provided free of charge with day and evening sessions available. To register for classes, schedule individual counseling, or receive more information on the support group, please call patient scheduling services at 770-918-3707.
