About the event

Diabetes can cause serious health problems, like heart disease, blindness, and kidney failure.

Through the diabetes self-management workshop, you can get the support you need to better manage your diabetes and pre- vent these serious problems.


The workshop is offered in a small-group format, and is for peo- ple with type 2 diabetes. The workshop is led by specially trained leaders, at least one who has diabetes. People who complete it say they see big improvements, like eating better, feeling less de- pressed, and having a better relationship with their doctors.

The program is designed to help you with:

  • Problem solving and action planning
  • Healthy eating
  • Exercise
  • Managing stress
  • Monitoring blood sugar
  • Handling sick days

Participants meet once a week for 6 weeks on Mondays from 10am - 12:30. Each workshop session lasts for 2 1⁄2 hours.

Dates: August 21 - October 2, excluding Sep 4 for Labor Day.
