Diabetes education is the cornerstone of diabetes management, because diabetes requires day-to-day knowledge of nutrition, exercise, monitoring and medication. Diabetes education makes a person aware of diabetes, and helps him/her understand what it takes to treat it and also gives the power to control it. The ultimate goal is to reduce the burden of diabetes on individuals, families, communities and health care systems and, by supporting good health, prevent or delay the onset of diabetes related long term complications.
Diabetes Support Group (DSG) is an initiative taken by Parivartan Foundation to train female population. We provide 8 hours (each session of 2 hours, every week) training in diabetes education along with all the resources to the female groups. The training also involves live demonstration of healthy meal preparation. Educational qualification is not the criteria for enrolment. Anybody can apply to join DSG Group. You just have to fill a form and provide 2 passport size photographs. You shall also be provided with a certificate after successfully completing 4 sessions training. You can submit the form at our office address. You can download the form here below.
After completing the DSG training, if you wish to work for the society, you can very easily join Parivartan Foundation as Parivartan Diabetes Saheli and provide diabetes education and create awareness in your locality or community.
Parivartan Foundation shall provide you all the resources (in hindi and pictorial format) required to train people about diabetes.
