CANCELLED: Healthy Living with Diabetes

This researched and proven workshop is designed to help adults with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes learn skills and increase their confidence in managing their diabetes. The workshop meets for 2½ hours once a week for six weeks, every Friday April 17 – May 22,  9-11:30am. Participants will meet in private in our larger conference room.

To register call The Aging & Disability Resource Center at (920) 787-6666 or toll free at 1-877-883-5378.

Healthy Living with Diabetes does not replace existing treatments, but rather complements the treatments a participant receives.
