DEEP is a Medicare-approved, evidence-based diabetes self-management education program for people with pre-diabetes or diabetes.

A series of classes conducted by a trained peer educator through Ohio Health Services Advisory Group focus on management of diabetes through keeping blood sugar normal, meal planning, physical activity, managing medications and working with your healthcare team, identifying and preventing diabetes complications.

The classes are held starting on Mar 6, 2020 for 6 consecutive weeks from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. and are held at Maumee Senior Center, 2430 S. Detroit Ave. in Maumee. There is no cost to participate.
