To help people with diabetes take charge of their health, Texas Health Resources is hosting a series of six workshops for Johnson County-area residents. The Diabetes Self-Management program is free and open to the public. It will begin April 14 at 10:00 a.m. at Cleburne Senior Center, 1212 Glenwood Drive, Cleburne, TX and meet once a week, on consecutive Thursdays, through May 19. All workshops will be held from 10:00 – 12:30 p.m. To receive the greatest benefit, participants should attend all 6 workshops.
The Stanford Diabetes Self-Management Program was developed by Stanford University and is intended for adults 18 and older with diabetes and their caregivers.
The workshop series will help participants improve communication with their health care providers, evaluate treatments, become more active, make healthy eating choices, and deal with pain and fatigue.
This series of six workshops is made possible through Texas Health Huguley Hospital and Adventist Health System’s CREATION Health grant. CREATION Health is a lifestyle plan that encourages taking small steps to living God’s plan for a healthy, balanced life.
Registration is required and seating is limited. Participants must join by session two for program eligibility. To register or for more information, contact 817-568-5503.
