Diabetes class 1

Our Diabetes Class 1 can help your employees who have pre-diabetes or diabetes. This class teaches them how to take control of their health. Whether they’ve just been diagnosed or have had diabetes for years, this class will help them.

Even if your employees don’t have diabetes, they can come to the class.

In class they’ll learn:

  • How diabetes affects their health
  • How to measure their blood sugar
  • What foods to eat
If they’ve already taken Diabetes Class 1, your employees can take Diabetes Class 2.

In this class, we give out:

  • A glucometer (blood sugar monitor)
  • A portion control plate
  • A physical activity and exercise book
  • A blood sugar log

If your employees already have a blood sugar monitor, they should bring it to the class. They can only get a new monitor from the Culinary Health Fund every two years.

Your employees can join our Diabetes Passport program for more help and rewards.

This class is offered:

  • In English, Spanish or Chinese
  • In the morning, afternoon, or at night
  • At no cost for your employees or their dependents. This means they don’t have to pay.

Your employees can call 702-691-5665 to sign up for a class.

“I’ve taken the Diabetes 1 and 2 Classes, the High Blood Pressure Class, and the Kidney Smart Class. The ladies that have taught the classes have been very good, understanding, and most importantly thoughtful in their presentations. I was given a blood pressure monitor and also a glucose meter. There’s even a portion plate. I’ve lost approximately 25 pounds; I’ve dropped one whole shirt size and one whole pant size. My energy level is absolutely amazing! If it can be helpful for me it can be helpful for many.” —John Ilyko
