Diabetes Self-Management Program Upcoming Classes

Diabetes does not have to take control of your life! There are “tools” available to take control of your diabetes in a way that fits your life, your way!

Living Well With Diabetes -- Your Life, Your Way is a structured, evidence-based program designed by the Self-Management Resource Center to help individuals living with type-2 diabetes manage their diabetes and the emotions that come with the disease.
 
This FREE program promotes self-efficacy by providing a tool box of “tools” to assist with self-management. The tool box includes “tools” like:

Healthy Eating: Understanding portions, servings & suggested protein/carbohydrates/fats
Avoiding Complications: Scheduling regular appointments with necessary physicians
Stress Management: Using guided imagery and relaxation
Action Planning: Setting obtainable and personal goals
Problem Solving: Knowing how to adjust goals when barriers exist

Who can participate?
