What is Healthy Living with Diabetes? This researched and proven workshop is designed to help adults with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes learn skills and increase their confidence in managing their diabetes. The workshop meets for 2.5 hours once a week for six weeks.

Healthy Living with Diabetes does not replace existing treatments, but rather complements the treatments a participant receives.

Who should take the workshop? Adults with type 2 diabetes, or with pre-diabetes, or living with someone who has diabetes.

What’s in it for me? People who have taken the workshop show better health, health behavior and a sense of confidence in managing their diabetes, improvements in blood sugar levels, decrease in health distress and hypo- and hyperglycemia, and fewer doctor and emergency room visits with fewer hospitalizations.

This workshop is FREE. Please register by calling the ADRC at (608) 930-9835.
