EMPOWER is a diabetes education course that supports people to better manage their type 2 diabetes and reduce the risk of long term health complications.

People diagnosed with type 2 diabetes across East Lancashire are able to attend a local EMPOWER course to receive support and advice on how to self-manage their diabetes to live a healthier quality of life  – it’s free, paid for by the NHS and only lasts 3 hours.

The EMPOWER course will help people to understand what diabetes is, the effect it has on their body and how to make small, achievable changes to the food they eat and their everyday life.  The course focuses on diet, exercise and lifestyle changes, setting personal goals and enabling people to take better control of their diabetes.

Courses are led by a trained Nurse Clinical Educator.
