If you have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or if you have had it for a while but have trouble understanding what to eat or how to keep up with your readings, we have a program designed to help.
Do Well, Be Well with diabetes is a nine lesson program that discusses what diabetes is and how to manage it. Each class is taught by a dietitian, nutritionist, nurse or physician with knowledge specific to diabetics. The nine classes will be taught over a 5 week period beginning on Saturday, February 2 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. The cost is $30 per person to attend the five week series which runs on consecutive Saturdays through March 2. Some scholarships are available thanks to a grant with the Grayson County Health Department if you have type 2 diabetes and want to participate but can not afford the $30 fee.
