UT Extension Offering Free Take Charge of Your Diabetes Program
Diabetes is a complicated disease that can strike fear, confusion, and helplessness in diagnosed people and caregivers. People with diabetes must deal not only with their disease, but also with the impact this has on their lives and emotions. A self-management approach to diabetes education gives people the knowledge, tools and confidence to take day to day responsibility of their diabetes care.
On September 20th, University of Tennessee Extension in Decatur & Henderson Counties, will be offering a free Take Charge of Your Diabetes Program workshop. The 6-week program is designed for people with diabetes and caregivers to learn basic skills necessary to self-manage their diabetes and work effectively with their healthcare professionals. The Take Charge of Your Diabetes Program is led by two UT Extension educators certified by Stanford University Diabetes Self-Management Program Master Trainers. Classes will be held every Tuesday for 6 weeks at 5 pm via Zoom.
