The Niagara County Department of Health Nursing Division, in partnership with the Niagara County Office for the Aging, is offering a free diabetes self-management workshop. The series is scheduled to begin Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the North Tonawanda Library, 505 Meadow Drive. It will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
This six-week program is for people who have diagnoses of diabetes. The program has demonstrated proven health benefits and complements the diabetic medical management services people receive from their providers. Participants will enhance skills to maintain active and fulfilling lifestyles, by improving problem solving and decision-making, as well as addressing the challenges of living with diabetes. Workshop topics also include improving food choices, increasing physical activity, and practicing coping skills to maintain nutrition and a healthy weight.
Individuals with diabetes or caregivers of persons with diabetes can register for the diabetes self-management workshop program by calling Kristin Wolf, R.N., Niagara County Department of Health Nursing Division, at 716-278-1900. Organizations and groups are also encouraged to contact the nursing division to schedule a free diabetes and/or chronic disease self-management workshop for their staff/clients.
