The Niagara County Department of Health Nursing Division, in partnership with the Niagara County Office for the Aging, is offering a free Diabetes Self-Management Workshop.  The workshop series is scheduled to begin on Friday, May 19 at Mount Saint Mary’s Hospital located at 5300 Military Road, Lewiston 14092. The free diabetes self-management workshop is scheduled from 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. (a complimentary lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m.). 


This six-week program is for people who have diagnoses of diabetes.  The program has demonstrated proven health benefits and complements diabetic medical management services that people receive from their providers.  Participants will enhance skills to maintain active and fulfilling lifestyles. They will learn to address the challenges of living with diabetes by improving problem-solving and decision-making abilities. Workshop topics also include improving food choices, increasing physical activity, and practicing coping skills to maintain nutrition and a healthy weight.
