Diabetes Self-Management Program
September 8 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Diabetes Self-Management Program is a community-based workshop to help people better manage their diabetes. This program is recommended for those who are managing Type 2 Diabetes or are Pre-Diabetic. Adult-age caregivers, family members, and other members of a support team are highly encouraged to attend as well. The Diabetes Self-Management Program is based on the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) developed at the Stanford University Patient Education Research Center. Different subject matters are taught over the course of 6 weekly, 2-1/2 hour sessions all focused to help each participant manage their diabetes. This program covers both the physical and emotional aspect of managing diabetes but does not replace any existing programs or treatment for the participants. This program will be offered free of charge; however, regular attendance is encouraged, and seating is limited. To register, visit www.stmarysmd.com/aging.
