Free Online Diabetes Self-Management Classes Begin September 10

Registration is open for a free, online series of classes on Diabetes Self Management that begins September 10, 2020.

What: This 6 week self-management class was developed at Stanford University and offers anyone living with diabetes – or anyone living with or caring for someone with diabetes – the tools and skills to successfully manage their condition.

Skills covered include healthy eating, physical activity, stress management, meal planning, working with your health care provider, reading food labels, and more.

Who should take these classes? Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties director Wendy Madson explained that “the purpose of this series is to help people with diabetes feel better, do the things they want to do and take control of their health. It is also very useful for anyone who is pre-diabetic or giving care to someone with diabetes.” Healthy Communities and Nye Communities Coalition are co-sponsoring the Diabetes Self Management series.

When: This opportunity to help people take charge of their own health is being offered free online September 10, 17, 24 and October 1, 8 and 15 from 1:30pm to 4pm.
