The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering a free diabetes self-management program for adults 60 and older living with diabetes or pre-diabetes and caregivers age 60 and older caring for someone with the disease.
These free virtual workshops will be held 1-3:30 p.m. Tuesdays, April 12 – May 17. A computer and internet access is required as the workshops will be done via Zoom or by phone conference.
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.
There is no charge for the workshops. Preregistration is required by March 25 by calling Megan Craley at (717) 855-0437.
