DeKalb Health Department Offering Free Diabetes Program Workshops

10:00 a.m.- Noon
DeKalb County Health Department

Diabetes is a complicated disease that can strike fear, confusion, and helplessness in diagnosed people and caregivers. People with diabetes must deal not only with their disease, but also with the impact this has on their lives and emotions. A self-management approach to diabetes education gives people the knowledge, tools and confidence to take day-by-day responsibility of their diabetes care.

On Jan 5th, 2015 the DeKalb County Health Department will be offering a free Take Charge of Your Diabetes Program workshop. The 6-week program is designed for people with diabetes and caregivers to learn basic skills necessary to self-manage their diabetes and work effectively with their health care professionals. The Take Charge of Your Diabetes Program is conducted by two leaders certified by Stanford University Diabetes Self-Management Program Master Trainers. Classes will be held every Monday from 10:00-12:00 beginning on Jan 5th. Registration is required.

For more information, or to sign up for the program, please contact Michal Deaver- Health Educator or staff at the DeKalb County Health Department at (615-597-7599).
