Mountain Climbing is a 12-month program designed to help those with diabetes learn and administer better methods of caring for the chronic disease. Each month a different topic is discussed including nutrition, physical activity, medication and glucose monitoring.

There is a $5 monthly fee for the person with diabetes and no extra charge for support persons to attend.
