Living with type 1 diabetes can be both trying and demanding as diabetes management requires a lot of time and effort and can impact so many areas of your life. Type 1 forum was combined with Back On Track education programs in 2019. Please visit Back On Track
Back on Track is offered on 3rd Tuesdays 3 - 5 pm every month at Tower D at Meriter Hospital.
Our ongoing diabetes education program is facilitated by UnityPoint Meriter's certified diabetes educators. The meetings are designed to assist you with developing diabetes knowledge and self-management strategies, as well as to help you build resilience and to increase your confidence that you have the skills and resources to manage diabetes in the long-term. In addition, these classes give you the opportunity to expand your support network and to learn from others who are also living with Type 1 diabetes. Our class sizes are small to allow for supportive group interaction.
The content areas included in the classes are those specified in the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.
If you have any questions, please call (608) 417-8300
and ask to speak to a certified diabetes educator.
