Take Charge of Your Diabetes

Thursdays starting March 19 – April 23, 12 Noon to 2 p.m. in HCMC Classrooms 2 & 3

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 to day responsibility of their diabetes care.

The Paris and Henry County Healthcare Foundation and Henry County Medical Center 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 healthcare professionals. The Take Charge of Your Diabetes Program is led by educators certified by Stanford University Diabetes Self-Management Program Master Trainers. Classes will be held every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

A free screening will be offered at the completion of the last class.

Spaces are limited for the 2-hour workship. The workshop is offered by the Paris and Henry County Healthcare Foundation Delta Rural Health Initiative.

Cost is free and open to anyone with diabetes. Spouses, family member and caregivers are welcome to attend.

To register, call 731-644-3463 or at hcmc.vewebsites.com.
