Learning to Prevent or Manage Diabetes for a Full and Active Life
Ethos, in partnership with the MA Department of Public Health, is offering a comprehensive program for those living with Diabetes. The Diabetes Self-Management Program is a Diabetes education workshop designed by Stanford University. Adults living with diabetes or pre-diabetes will learn several techniques for monitoring and improving their condition. Topics covered include: avoiding disease complications, healthy eating, physical activity, medication management, and dealing with stress. Menu planning is an important part of this workshop.
