Description

Living Well with Diabetes is a 6-week group program for people with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Developed by Stanford University, this program can help you deal with the symptoms of diabetes—including tiredness, pain, and emotional issues—by helping you learn how to eat and sleep better, manage your day-to-day activities more effectively, and more. This interactive workshop meets for 2.5 hours per week for 6 weeks.

Topics include:

  • Techniques to deal with the symptoms of diabetes— fatigue, pain, hyper/ hypoglycemia, stress, and emotional problems such as depression, anger, fear, and frustration.
  • Healthy eating, menu planning, and reading labels.
  • Appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance.
  • Taking medications as prescribed.
  • Working more effectively with health care providers.

Workshop details:

Classes meet Thursday afternoons 6pm-8:30pm. (September 20, 27 & October 4, 11, 18, 25)
