Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP) is a Medicare-approved, evidence-based diabetes self-management education (DSME) program developed by the University of Illinois at Chicago. DEEP workshops meet once a week for six weeks and each session lasts two hours. DEEP provides a supportive environment where participants work together in a small group to ensure that people with diabetes and prediabetes can acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to reduce complications resulting from diabetes such as kidney failure, amputation, vision loss, heart failure, and stroke. DEEP workshops are interactive and involve demonstrations, role play, games, and other engaging activities for group learning. For further information, contact Denise Kaminski, RN in Social Services at 1-800-367-4935 or 419-353-5661.
