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 to register. 

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.
