Do Well Be Well with Diabetes II

October 3 @ 6:00 pm - November 7 @ 8:00 pm

$10.00

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease, while not curable it is manageable.  With over 2.7 million Texans diagnosed with the disease; diabetes education provides an opportunity to help people with diabetes understand how to manage their disease through healthy eating patterns, being physically active, and following proper self-care management.

Clients who participate in an evidence-based diabetes education program have shown to delay and prevent further complications associated with type 2 diabetes.  Do Well, Be Well with Diabetes is a five week series, developed by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Food and Nutrition Unit, to help people with type 2 diabetes learn how to manage their blood glucose through basic nutrition and self-care management.   

Topics in the series include:

  • how food affects blood glucose
  • the proper method to test blood glucose
  • understand medications
  • incorporate foods into a healthy eating pattern
  • much more.

Dates for the fall classes are Tuesday, October 3, 10, 17, 24, and November 7. Classes are from 6 to 8 p.m. There is a $10.00 registration fee that covers handouts and food samples.
