PEEPS™ Diabetes Education Program

Your home for diabetes self-management and education.

Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States.

Over 30 million Americans have diabetes, projected to rise to 44.1 million by 2034. Rural and minority communities face healthcare barriers that limit their access to proper care.

PEEPS™ uses online Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) and trains peer educators to increase access to care in at-risk communities where certified diabetes specialists are limited.

Be our PEEPS™

PEEPS™ stands for Peers Educating, Empowering, and Providing Support and its aim is to empower persons living with diabetes and those at risk for diabetes. When you complete the 7-weeks online curriculum, users will become certified “PEEPS” Community Peer Counselors. PEEPS™ peer counselors will be qualified to conduct their own peer-led community group meetings and in turn empower even more people.

The PEEPS™ Course is perfect for

anyone who has an interest in learning more about diabetes in an organized way and gaining useful tools for managing the condition.

You will find valuable resources and support that will empower you and improve your quality of life going forward.
