The Diabetes Self Management Education (DSME) program at the Bulfinch Medical Group has been Recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education*.



The DSME program at the Bulfinch Medical Group consists of an individual visit with a nurse practitioner or diabetes educator.  From here, participants may proceed on to a series of group education sessions facilitated by a diabetes educator.  Each program participant will also receive a 1:1 visit with a Registered Dietician. Patients are encouraged to bring a family member or friend for support.

Diabetes Self Management Education classes are offered for Type 2 adult patients.  Group education sessions are scheduled one at a time.  All groups will meet in the Educational Learning Center at Bulfinch Medical Associates.
