Individual and group support for managing diabetes

Through the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Program, you and your family can gain the knowledge and tools you need to make the best day-to-day decisions about your diabetes and overall health.

As part of our diabetes care at Scripps, our patient education services include individual counseling and group classes provided by diabetes professionals, including nurses, dietitians, psychologists and educators. We strive to make our offerings convenient and easy to access. Classes are offered in English or Spanish, on weekdays, day or evening, as video visits or in-person in multiple locations throughout San Diego County. Our diabetes self-management education program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association.

We are also offering new classes for our Filipino and Middle Eastern communities in English, Tagalog, and Arabic. The classes have been culturally tailored to meet the needs of our Filipino and Middle Eastern communities.
