All Classes taught by a Certified Fitness Professional

Each session is instructed by a certified fitness professional. Nutrition activities include meal planning tips, portion control and making healthy choices. Before starting the program, the child meets with their physician and visits with a registered dietitian to identify risk factors and set reasonable goals.

At the end of six weeks, follow-up visits with the child’s physician assess progress. If you have questions, call Genesis Diabetes Management and Nutrition Education at 454-4568 or toll-free at 866-351-6688.
