Diabetes Self-Management Education (SC)

Reducing Disparities in Diabetes Care: Everyone with Diabetes Counts

Diabetes is the seventh-leading cause of death in SC behind cancer, heart disease, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, accidents, and Alzheimer’s.1 The quality-of-life issues are great, and the financial burden enormous.

  • In 2012, total hospital charges related to a diagnosis of diabetes were $250 million. Medicare and Medicaid paid for more than two-thirds of this cost.
  • In 2012, SC ranked 7th-highest in the nation in the percentage of adults with diabetes.

Approximately one in seven African-Americans in SC has diabetes, which ranks SC as the 5th-highest state for diabetes among African-Americans in the nation.

Diabetes Self-management Education Training

Diabetes self-management education (DSME) is a proven intervention for empowering persons with diabetes to take an active role in controlling their disease. We will work with you and your community to schedule and plan DSME training classes. These classes last 5 – 6 weeks depending on the curriculum. For more information call or email Sharon Eubanks.
