Monday, February 28, 2022 - Have you been diagnosed with diabetes or as pre-diabetic? If so, you might consider attending the upcoming Diabetes and Beyond education program. The program will take place on Tuesdays over the next six weeks at the Muldrow Public Library through March 29. Each class starts at 11:00 a.m. and will end at 12:30 p.m.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), "Diabetes is a chronic, long-lasting health condition that affects how your body turns food into energy."
The Diabetes and Beyond education program is based on principles of empowerment and education and was created to provide individuals with the tools they need to better manage diabetes. Those attending will learn about the importance of a healthy diet, physical activity, and maintaining a positive outlook.
Throughout the program, you will learn how diabetes affects your body, make sense of blood sugar numbers, meet others who have diabetes, and have fun learning in a small group through games and activities.
The class is open to anyone who is pre-diabetic, diabetic, or those who think they could have diabetes.
Family members and caregivers of those with diabetes are strongly encouraged to attend as well.
The class is made possible through a grant from the Rural Health Projects Health Promotion Grant from the EODD Area Agency on Aging and the Eastern Oklahoma Library System.
