The Cray Diabetes Self-Management Center and The University of Kansas Hospital have teamed up to offer free classes to patients who do not have insurance coverage for diabetes education.

Check out our calendar to find specific days and times of classes. You are free to walk in to any class and no advance sign-up is needed.
Bring a Friend: Appointments are very comprehensive and the amount of information you receive can seem overwhelming. Bring one friend or family member with you to help listen and take notes at no extra cost to you! The appointment will be focused on the patient's needs; if your friend or family member has specific questions regarding his/her diabetic needs, we request that he/she make a separate appointment.
Insurance: We do not bill insurance or charge any fees for this class. If you want to know more about other classes your insurance might cover, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page. We would also be happy to walk you through the process if you call 913-588-6022, option 3.
