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 diabetes self-management 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.

This free six-week workshop will be offered at the Edison Township Public Library, Main Branch on 340 Plainfield Avenue in Edison, NJ 08817. Workshops are on Tuesdays, November 14 to December 19, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. All attendees must register by the second workshop session.
