The Diabetes Self Management Education (DSME) program at the Charlestown Community Health Center has been Recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education*.

The DSME program at the Charlestown Health Center begins with a comprehensive individual visit with a diabetes nurse educator.  Participants may then proceed to a series of group education sessions or one-on-one visits facilitated by a diabetes educator.  Patients are encouraged to bring a family member or friend for support.

Diabetes Self Management Education classes are offered for Type 1 and 2 adult patients in English. 

All classes meet in the Education Center in the basement of the health center.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Eileen McAdams, NP, CDE at 617 724-8160 or emcadams@partners.org
