LIVING WELL WITH DIABETES
A group workshop designed to increase self-management techniques and address specific concerns and goals for people with type 2 diabetes. Participants set goals and make a step-by-step plan to improve their health. Workshops are interactive and focus on peer support. A resource book is provided for class participants.
The Living Well with Diabetes workshop focuses on key diabetes self-management skills, including the relationship between food and blood sugar levels and healthy eating with diabetes. Participants will learn techniques to deal with the symptoms of diabetes, fatigue, pain, hyper/hypoglycemia, stress, depression, anger, fear and frustration. We will also discuss physical activity, appropriate use of medications, working with health care providers, and how to accomplish your goals.
Workshop sessions take place 1x/week for six weeks. Each session is 2.5 hr. in length. Classes are facilitated by a pair of trained leaders.
Living Well with Diabetes is for anyone 18 or older with type 2 diabetes.
