Thrive with Diabetes

March 1, 2022

Thrive with Diabetes 6:00-7:30pm

Diabetes can be an intimidating disease given that it is a chronic condition with no cure. It can also lead to serious consequences, such as kidney failure and nerve damage, when it’s poorly managed. Additionally, a lack of information can make diabetes care frustrating for people who just received news of their diagnosis, as well as for people who have been coping with diabetes for years. It’s perfectly understandable to feel overwhelmed if you or someone in your family has diabetes. However, living with diabetes should not be dreadful! Having a basic understanding of medications, nutrition, and lifestyle modifications can help anyone take control of their diabetes and live a healthy life. The purpose of our “Thrive with Diabetes” program is to address information gaps and provide participants with the tools and knowledge necessary to feel more confident and to better manage their blood glucose.  Read more
