Diabetes affects one out of every four Americans. Your quality of life depends greatly on how you manage the disease. By managing diabetes on a daily basis, you will lower your risk of long-term complications. That why Western Baptist offers the free monthly class Life With Diabetes.
Certified diabetes educator Kathy West, R.N., a registered dietitian and a pharmacist will cover these topics in two three-hour sessions:
- Goal setting
- Meal planning
- Medication management
- Stress management
- Blood glucose monitoring
Upcoming classes are July 16 and 18, Aug. 13 and 15 and Sept. 10 and 12. All classes are from 1 to 4 p.m. and are located in the atrium classroom, on the second floor of Doctors Office Building 2, except for September when classes will be in Meeting Room B on the first floor.
A physician’s order is required to attend. Under the direction of your physician, you will be able to use your self-management skills more effectively, leading to a better quality of life.
