About Diabetes Education and Management

Diabetes can cause major health problems. However, if you are one of the 21 million Americans with diabetes, you can have a positive influence on your overall health by learning how to care for yourself.


If you are like most people, you have many questions about living a healthy life with diabetes. The Diabetes Education and Management Program (DEMP) can answer those questions for you.


DEMP’s follow up data shows that, overall, clients having completed the program are better informed and able to control their diabetes using the information they learned. Good diabetes control delays or prevents diabetes complications.
