Diabetes Support Group
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. The basic educational qualification required is HSC to enroll for DSG. 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.

After completing the DSG training, there are three options available for the candidate.
