The purpose of this study is to understand whether a program that uses several teaching methods will improve diabetes care in people who have limited access to care. This information may lead to better treatment for people with diabetes mellitus. We will look at your basic diabetes knowledge, beliefs and behaviors related to diabetes, your use of Florida Hospital Kissimmee, your weight, walking ability, and laboratory measures mentioned below before and after the program to see if there is any change. We plan to publish our results in a research journal once the study is complete. If we publish the results of this study, only information from the whole group of study patients will be presented
