About Your Program

About Your Program

Your diabetes program is 16 weeks long and includes 6 main parts. This information is also found in your patient manual.

1. Intake Assessment

Our lab staff and program doctor talked to you about your medical history and risk factors for heart disease, did an exercise survey, and started a plan for your care.

You may have come onsite to complete an exercise stress test. The team will use the information from this test to create a safe and effective exercise prescription just for you.

2. Orientation and Safety

This is the first scheduled group session in your program. Use your computer to join a required session to:

  • Hear more about your program
  • Learn about the rules that both you and our team need to follow to protect against COVID-19
  • Learn about the technology being used to deliver group sessions
  • Ask questions

3. Group Sessions

There are 12 scheduled group sessions - this includes the Orientation and Safety session. You will attend 4 sessions onsite at 347 Rumsey Road and 8 virtual sessions. During these sessions, your diabetes team will help you create an exercise routine and provide expert advice on exercise and education related to your care.

4. Mid-point assessment

Your diabetes team will talk to you about the progress you have made in the program so far. You may come onsite for another exercise stress test.

5. Discharge assessment

Around week 15, you will review your progress with your diabetes team. To see the progress you have made, you may:

  1. Complete an exercise stress test
  2. Repeat a few surveys and questions from the intake assessment so we can compare your numbers from the start and end of your program

6. Graduate program

Stay connected to the program with access to education, exercise, and fundraising events after you graduate.
