Living Healthy with Diabetes workshop fall 2023

Diabetes affects more than 37 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That’s 1 in 10 people. To help those living with this chronic condition, the N.C. Cooperative Extension and Gaston County Department of Health & Human Services are offering the “Living Healthy with Diabetes” workshop in August. There is no cost to participants, but registration is required.

“Living Healthy with Diabetes” is a free program sponsored by Centralina Area Agency on Aging and is designed for anyone with diabetes, pre-diabetes, or at risk for diabetes. The program, valued at more than $800, consists of six weekly sessions:

  • Dates:  Wed., August 23  – September 27, 2023 (total of 6 sessions)
  • Time:  9:30 a.m.  –  12:00 p.m.

All sessions will be held at the First United Methodist Church of Stanley (Common Ground), located at 5481 Hickory Grove Rd., Stanley, NC.

“We’re excited to offer this in-person workshop that helps individuals with diabetes to connect with others who are managing the same chronic health condition,” said Linda Minges, program facilitator for N.C. Cooperative Extension.

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.

Registration is required by contacting Linda Minges at 704.922.2127 or emailing her at linda_minges@ncsu.edu  by August 9, 2023. Participants must be able to attend at least four out of the six sessions.

“In addition to getting tips on best management practices, individuals get support and ideas from others,” Minges said. “It truly makes a difference in the lives of so many people.”
