The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering a free Diabetes Self-Management program.
Adults 60 and older living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and caregivers age 60 and older caring for someone with diabetes, can participate in the workshops. The interactive program spans six workshops, once a week for one hour. The workshops will be taught by certified instructors through the agency.
Developed by the Self-Management Resource Center, formerly Stanford University Patient Education Program, this health promotion program introduces participants to self-management tools like healthy eating, monitoring blood sugar, action planning, and dealing with difficult emotions, among others. A companion book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, 4th Edition, and an audio relaxation CD will be provided for all participants.
These free virtual workshops will be held from 10 to 11 am every Tuesday, beginning August 10 through September 14. A computer and internet access is required as the workshops will be done via Zoom, or by phone conference.
There is no charge for the workshops. Pre-registration is required by calling Megan Craley at 717-771-9610, ext. 1017.
