Inspiring Communities began diabetes self-management workshops in January 2016. There are few entities that are ADA/AADE approved recognition programs that provide Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) in Contra Costa County. Approved entities include John Muir Hospital, San Ramon Valley Medical Center and Inspiring Communities. We have completed dozens of workshops primarily in West County and our target population has been seniors diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Our workshops are in English and Spanish.
