Having diabetes should not prevent people from enjoying a normal, healthy lifestyle, learning to effectively self-manage the condition can be very empowering. Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics is presenting a three-evening class on diabetes self-management called “Living Well with Diabetes” on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, June 7, 8 & 9, 2016 from 6 to 9 p.m. (6 to 8 p.m. Thursday) in the Pershing Room at Mason General Hospital.
MGH&FC’s Diabetes Wellness program has a team of clinical experts who teach the class, covering everything about diabetes – from diagnosis, to medications, meal planning, exercise, prevention and treatment of complications, stress management, living well, and engaging support people and a health care team. They offer guidance in managing and keeping diabetes under control so patients and families can enjoy normal, healthy living.
As space for the class is limited, advance registration is required by calling Sue Barwick, R.N., certified diabetes educator, at (360) 426-1611, ext. 28940 (from Allyn (360) 275-8614, ext. 28940). Diabetes education is a covered service under most insurance plans.
