Diabetes Education at The Kirklin Clinic of UAB Hospital is an ADA-Recognized program offering comprehensive diabetes education in group and individual settings. Our classes focus on the AADE Seven Diabetes Self-Care Behaviors: Health Eating, Reducing Risks, Being Active, Healthy Coping, Taking Medications, Monitoring, and Problem Solving. Patients complete the class in two sessions, then are followed up by phone to assess progress on goals. We also offer individual counseling as needed and conduct insulin pump training.
