Diabetes Month

It’s the first day of National Diabetes Month! If you’re living with diabetes, knowledge and management are key to preventing further problems and living a full life. Eating healthily, staying active, and monitoring your blood sugar and general health are the basics of managing diabetes. Having a team of people, including friends, family, and doctors to support your care is a very good practice, and can help with problem solving and reducing risk of other problems with eyes, feet and teeth.

The Critical Path Learning Center has several workshops related to diabetes this month. Whether you live with diabetes, are at risk, or simply curious about who is likely to be at risk, these free workshops offer knowledge and resources.  One is even about what apps you can use to help manage your diabetes!  A full list can be found at https://critpath.org/community-workshops/. You can also call 267-428-7352.
