The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering a free diabetes self-management program this month.

The free virtual workshops will be held 10–11 a.m. every Tuesday, Aug. 10 through Sept. 14. A computer and internet access are required, as the workshops will be done via Zoom or by phone conference.

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, and 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. 

There is no charge for the workshops. Preregistration is required by calling Megan Craley at (717) 771-9610, ext. 1017.
