Diabetes can affect many parts of the body and can lead to serious complications such as blindness, kidney damage and lower-limb amputations. Together, people with diabetes, their support network and their health care providers can reduce the occurrence of these and other diabetes complications by controlling the levels of blood glucose, blood pressure and blood lipids by receiving other preventive care practices in a timely manner.
Many of the programs presented during our monthly Healthy Life Workshops cover topics that are of great interest and value to anyone wanting to learn new ways to live a healthy life.
These free educational sessions are held the first Thursday of each month in the Hospital's Cafeteria meeting area. The workshops feature guest speakers including physicians, dieticians, and other healthcare professionals covering a variety of topics including healthy eating, monitoring blood sugar levels, taking medications, problem solving,and much more. Past programs have also featured the Arthritis Foundation, the Hospital's Clinical Trials Research program, and much more.
Reservations are not required. Light refreshments will be served.
