A workshop series is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, November 12 at Eastern Niagara Hospital, 521 East Avenue, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  The workshop consists of 6 consecutive weekly classes. This is a program with proven health benefits for people with diabetes, and complements the health care an individual may already be receiving.
