Diabetes PATH

Personal Action Toward Health

Stanford University’s Chronic Disease Self Management Program

Diabetes PATH is a six-week workshop designed especially for adults with Type 2 diabetes, their family, friends and caregivers.

Participants will learn:

  • Techniques to deal with symptoms
  • Meal planning and healthy eating
  • Appropriate use of medication
  • How to work with health care providers

People who have taken the workshop say they have more energy and less pain, get more exercise, feel more comfortable talking to their doctors, and are more confident that they can manage their health.
