Diabetic Group Classes Offered at Wayne HealthCare

Keeping your blood glucose within target range reduces your risk of developing diabetes related complications. Controlling your blood glucose starts with increasing your knowledge about diabetes and setting goals to make lifestyle changes. Education provides you with the latest information regarding diabetes and helps identify myths about diabetes. Classes also provide you with an individualized meal plan that fits your lifestyle and nutritional needs.

The Certified Diabetes Educator from Wayne HealthCare provides education through interactive Diabetic Group classes. The classes will provide you with knowledge and motivation to manage your diabetes.

The classes will help understand the following: 1) facts associated with diabetes, 2) the relationship between diabetes and healthy eating, 3) the value of monitoring and using the results, 4) the importance of exercise, 5) how diabetic medications work, and 6) ways to reduce risk of complications.

The class series consists of four classes. The cost to attend is $10 per class or $40 for all four classes. Registration is required so please contact the Certified Diabetes Educator at 937-547-5750.

To meet individual’s schedules, the classes in September will be held at two locations. Classes will be held at Wayne HealthCare on September 12, 19, 26, and October 3, 2011 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and at the Union City Medical Center on September 16, 23, 30, and October 7, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
