University of Missouri Extension is partnering with the Central Missouri Regional Arthritis Center to offer a free diabetes self-management program, "Living a Healthy Life with Diabetes," beginning August 19.
The six-week program series is scheduled virtually via Zoom on Wednesdays, August 19, 26, September 2, 9, 16 and 23, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
The weekly sessions are for individuals with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes and their family and caregivers. Participants learn strategies for managing diabetes to help improve blood sugar levels and decrease the risk of long-term complications.
Topics include meal planning, physical activity, self-care routines, relaxation, handling difficult emotions, problem-solving and medications.
There is no charge to attend due to grant funding through the Central Missouri Regional Arthritis Center. Participants receive the book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, and a relaxation CD.
