Diabetes Empowerment Education

Diabetes Empower Education Program (DEEP) is a free, six-week workshop to help older adults with diabetes learn more about diabetes, self-manage their condition, and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

This workshop is offered by our community partner, Onlok, and meets once a week for two hours. The workshop is facilitated by a health educator and developed by the Midwest Latino Health Research Training and Policy Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Who is eligible
