DEEP (Diabetes Empowerment Education Program) is a small group workshop that is designed to help older adults put life back in their life. DEEP may be for you if you have long term challenges with diabetes or are a caregiver for someone with this challenge. Have FUN learning in small groups through games, activities and support conversations. Learn how to effectively communicate with all of your healthcare team members.
