Although over 200,000 Oklahomans have diabetes, those who take an active role in their health do much better at managing theirs. With the Jane Phillips Diabetes Education Program, we give you the knowledge and skills to make managing diabetes part of your lifestyle.

Education sessions are taught by a registered nurse and registered dietitian, certified diabetes educators who use a combination of teaching, counseling, and lifestyle changes to help you learn to manage diabetes and enhance your quality of life. Together, they work with you to meet your needs and treatment goals.
