Individual Diabetes Education

Insulin education instruction

What's this all about?

Patients with diabetes receive the best outcomes when they learn in a group, but we understand that occasionally a person is better suited for individual education. In this case, our staff includes two educators who would be delighted to meet with you individually and answer your specific questions.

Recommended for patients who:

  • Cannot attend group classes
  • Have special learning needs (e.g. problems with hearing or vision; patients who do not speak English)
  • Have specific education questions (e.g. advanced insulin pumping; starting a new medication)

Appointment offerings:

E-mail or call us at 913-588-6022, option 3 to request an appointment.

To make the most of the session, we recommend that you keep a logbook of your food intake, your carb count, your blood sugar (BG), and your medication for at least three days before attending your appointment.

Ann Walker, MS, RD, LD: Monday afternoons, Wednesday afternoons, Thursday mornings, and Friday afternoons, based on availability and scheduled in advance.

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.
