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.

Healthy Eating: Understanding portions, servings & suggested protein/carbohydrates/fats
