Diabetes control is an ongoing problem at an underserved clinic in Central Illinois. Diabetic patients referred to an educator follow-up at their discretion, while 15-minute appointments are inadequate to address all their needs. A 12-week group education was conducted, showing improvement in HgbA1c, increased diabetes knowledge and promoted social support.
