The Alameda County Public Health Department is providing an educational series on diabetes self-management. Attendees will gain a better understanding of diabetes and how it is diagnosed.
Learn how to eat foods you enjoy while managing your diabetes. Also learn how your medications work. Understand the seven self-care behaviors: healthy eating, physical activity, monitoring blood glucose, taking prescribed medications, solving problems in unusual situations, reducing the risk of complications, and coping with stress and emotional issues.
This is a six-week series open to Alameda County residents 18 or older who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Interested parties should plan to attend all sessions.
