Free Diabetes Education Program
Did you know that heart disease is the number one cause of death for people with diabetes? To help the folks reach their heart-health goals, Faith Community Health, Neighbor’s Pharmacy, and the Regional Arthritis Center have partnered with MU Extension to offer a Diabetes Self-Management Program starting Thursday, June 15. This 6-week program is geared toward people with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Family members and caregivers are also encouraged to register. Topics will include: appropriate exercise, healthy eating, meal planning, glucose monitoring, action plans, how to prepare for sick days, and complications from diabetes. The program is interactive so people can find support and build the confidence to be successful at managing their health.
Space is limited. Registration is required. Sign up today by going online or calling 417-546-4431. For questions or ADA accommodations, please contact Jenni Nevatt at 417-581-3558 or email her email@example.com.
