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

Individuals with diabetes or caregivers of persons with diabetes can register for the Diabetes Self- Management Workshop Program by calling the Niagara County Department of Health Nursing Division at (716) 278-1900.
