Master this Course!

Set a Goal for Completion
Setting a goal for completion puts you in the driver’s seat of your journey through this course. Mark your calendar. Set aside about an hour to view each video, complete the test and evaluation, and reflect on how you will use this new information to set a personal goal. After session 1, you may cut a few minutes off each session by double clicking to the 2:40 time on the slide progress bar to skip the introduction. You can also skip the repeated closing statements. You can pause the presentation when needed. Following the webpage course guide will aide you in completing each lesson. It is best to do at least 2 lessons per week to keep re-enforcing the information you are learning. You can use either of the 2 options below:
On Your Own
Watch the videos anytime and call Linda Goldsholl, RD at 240-777-1701 with your questions during the hours of 8am – 3pm.
Join the “One Month and Done!” Group Schedule
Watch the videos assigned for that week and join a conference call for added support on the following Monday. Details will be provided via email. If Monday is a holiday, the conference calls will be held on the following Tuesday at 12PM or 7:30PM. Let us know you will be on the call! Send an email to Linda.Goldsholl@montgomerycountymd.gov to receive the weekly handouts.
Don’t Fret Over the Tests
Each video topic includes a short test that must be taken to complete the session on your progress record. If you find the tests difficult, it might help to review each test prior to watching the video. Do not worry about your score. You can review the material and take the test again. Our goal is to provide this course so that you can learn, and apply what you learn, to your everyday life.
Keep the Focus: Remember Why You are Taking this Course
Think about why you are taking this course and what you hope to accomplish. Is it to gain insight into your health or the health of someone else? Is it to have a better handle on managing your diabetes? Whatever the reason, keep that in mind as you work towards your personal goals!
