Diabetes PATH is a fun, six-week interactive workshop led by certified leaders with personal experience to help all adults living with Type 2 diabetes live a healthier life. Patients and their caregivers will gain hands-on experience learning to manage all aspects of their diabetes including communicating better with family and friends, relaxation, understanding nutrition labels, handling difficult emotions, and increasing strength and endurance through physical activity. The completion of this workshop will allow participants to:
manage everyday activities by making an action plan
improve your overall health and increase your energy
learn to balance your blood sugar
create healthy meal plans
cope with fatigue and pain
It has been proven in studies to reduce symptoms and physician visits as well as increase self-management abilities and communication with doctors. Managing diabetes can present challenges throughout life, and making changes can be hard. Feel more confident and focused as you create personal action plans and set practical, achievable goals that are right for you!
“This was the best workshop I’ve attended with so much interaction. I have learned so much about diabetes and how to control it and change my habits. I have learned how to manage emotions, read food labels, create action plans and hold myself accountable for completing them," said a recent Diabetes PATH participant.
