EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Diabetes management is the subject of a  free six-week workshop will be offered at the East Brunswick Public Library  on Fridays from September 15 to October 27, 2017 (skipping September 22) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  All attendees must register by the second workshop session. Each participant (one per household) will receive a complimentary textbook, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, 4th edition ($20 value).

Quality Insights Quality Innovation Network, supported locally by Healthcare Quality Strategies, Inc. (HQSI), is partnering with Middlesex County Office of Health Services to provide free diabetes workshops as part of the Everyone with Diabetes Counts (EDC) program. The EDC program is a national initiative of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The program offers free self-management workshops that are open to people with Medicare who have diabetes, their family members and caregivers.

 

The free workshops follow the Diabetes Self-Management Program originally developed at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Workshops are designed to educate individuals about diabetes and help them learn how to manage it and take control of their health through various tools, behavior modification and coping techniques. Participants will learn about preventing complications, healthy eating, exercise, how to deal with stress and difficult emotions, managing medications, effective communication with healthcare providers, and much more.

 

For more information or to register for these free workshops, call Cathy Chern at (732) 390-6767. Visit www.qualityinsights-qin.org to learn more about the program or read real success stories about EDC graduates who have made positive changes to their lives.
