Success With Diabetes

Touro's Success with Diabetes program is a 6-session program that supports members of our community as they strive to live healthy and happy lives with diabetes.

Why We Care

According to the CDC, in the United States:

  • About 38 million adults have diabetes.
  • Diabetes is the eighth leading cause of death.
  • Diabetes is the No. 1 cause of kidney failure, lower-limb amputations, and adult blindness.
  • In the last 20 years, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes has more than doubled.
  • Medical costs and lost work and wages for people with diagnosed diabetes total $413 billion in 2022.
  • Medical costs for people with diabetes are more than twice as high as for people who don't have diabetes.

What We Do

Success with Diabetes is an engaging six-session program designed to help people with type 2 diabetes understand their condition and provide tools to manage their diabetes successfully. Participants learn about different aspects of healthy living, including stress management, nutrition, diabetes medications, and more.

Specifically, our program aims to help the Success with Diabetes participants develop the skills necessary to care for themselves while managing their diabetes. These skills include:

  • Improving quality of life and preventing complications from diabetes
  • Understanding and making sense of your lab values
  • Learning about your medications and medication management
  • Learning a variety of exercises for their own skill and age level
  • Improving their eating habits

Classes are held throughout Solano County, providing resources to those who need them most and furthering Touro University California's dedication to real-world experience for our students and service to our local community.
