Do you or a family member have diabetes, pre-diabetes, or at risk for diabetes? If so, then learn to take control of your diabetes with the upcoming Living Healthy with Diabetes workshop. N.C. Cooperative Extension and Gaston County Department of Health & Human Services are offering the next session of Living Healthy with Diabetes workshop, a free self-management program which begins in November.
“This in-person workshop helps individuals with diabetes to connect with others who are managing the same chronic health condition. In addition to getting tips on best management practices, individuals get support and ideas from others” said Linda Minges, N.C. Cooperative Extension.
Living Healthy with Diabetes is a program sponsored by Centralina Area Agency on Aging and is designed for anyone with diabetes, pre-diabetes, or at risk for diabetes. Participants will learn how to prevent low blood sugar; prevent and delay complications of diabetes; eat well; use medications effectively; manage pain, fatigue and depression; solve problems and set goals. The program is valued at more than $800 and there is no cost to participants.
“Living Healthy with Diabetes truly makes a difference in the lives of so many people. Many participants report how helpful the group discussions are as well as being able to problem-solve together on health issues that impact everyone,” said Minges.
The program consists of six weekly sessions, scheduled for Wednesdays, November 9th through December 21st from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. All sessions will be held at the Lucile Tatum Center, 959 Osceola St., Gastonia. There is no cost to you, but pre-registration is required. You must be able to attend at least four out of the six sessions. Participants receive a copy of “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions” workbook, a relaxation CD, tote bag, and refreshments.
Pre-registration is required by October 21st by contacting Linda J. Minges: 704.922.2127 or email@example.com
