We ARE DIABETES MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
the 501c3 home of: The Diabetes Bus Initiative
Diabetes is complicated- ask anyone you know with diabetes. Day-to-day things like eating, activity level, exercise, stress, and oftenmultiple medication management all must be monitored for their effect on blood glucose. Diabetes gets more difficult to manage the longer you have it. It is often misunderstood, and people with diabetes are often blamed both for having "caused" their diabetes through poor lifestyle choices and for poor management of their diabetes even though many factors that can't be modified by a person can lead to the diagnosis of diabetes and to uncontrolled blood glucoses.
People new to diabetes and people who face worsening blood glucose management need help navigating this condition by someone who knows about it. Our educators are all Certified Diabetes Educators and are highly qualified at helping people learn the skills to manage their diabetes while maintaining their quality of life and navigating through problems that arise as the diabetes becomes more challenging to manage . We offer free classes in small town hospitals and through employers in North Carolina.
DMS works hard at buidling collaborative relationships with others striving for better, healthier North Carolinian's like: Community Care of North Carolina, BeActive NC, Healthy Carolinians 2020, Eat Smart, Move More NC, and our many hospitals and employer groups in the regions where we provide service.
We need your continued support so that we can continue to offer FREE diabetes self-management classes in low-access communities to ensure that people have access to help managing their diabetes despite their insurance coverage and ability to pay. Your donations will help us lift the burden of diabetes one class, one person at a time
