Are you a person with Medicare living with diabetes or know someone who is? Take control of your health through a free and fun six-week workshop series.
Meet others going through similar experiences and learn about diabetes and its risks, preventing complications, healthy eating, exercise, medication management, dealing with stress and depression, action planning, and much more.
Last October, 13 people graduated from the workshop series that took place at the library.
Graduates from the program lost weight, improved eating habits, started walking, and lowered blood sugar levels.
“I have learned more in this workshop than I have in 10 years of fighting this disease,” said Marian, a woman with Type 2 diabetes who graduated from a previous workshop.
The free diabetes self-management workshop series will be offered at the East Brunswick Public Library on 2 Jean Walling Civic Center in East Brunswick, NJ 08816 on Mondays, June 4 to July 9 from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm.
Healthy snacks, literature, and resources will be provided.
To register, call the library’s Information Services Desk at (732) 390-6767.
