Diabetes Class Offered
Holy Family Memorial is offering a six-week series for those living with diabetes, entitled “Healthy Living with Diabetes.” The class will be held each Tuesday, February 3 – March 10, from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at Holy Family Memorial’s Harbor Town Campus, 1650 S. 41st Street, in the Cooperstown Room. Cost of the class is only $10 for all six weeks.
This class is ideal for adults with Type 2 diabetes, adults with pre-diabetes, or adults caring for someone who has diabetes. Participants will learn about the best nutrition and activity choices and how to talk to their doctor and family about their health. The class is designed to help adults learn skills and increase their confidence in managing their diabetes.
People who have taken this workshop show better health, health behavior and a sense of confidence in managing their diabetes, in addition to improvements in blood sugar levels, and fewer doctor and emergency room visits.
Space for this class is limited. Please register by calling the Aging and Disability Resource Center of the Lakeshore at 683-4180.
