MANAGE YOUR DIABETIC LIFESTYLE WITH THE Y
The Capital District YMCA teamed up with the Center for Excellence in Aging and Community Wellness to bring this set of workshops to not only Y members, but also the community.
For 2.5 hours a week for 6 weeks, this program educates individuals on how to sustain a healthy life with diabetes. The diabetes Self-Management Program is offered in all of our branches with no cost.
2 lifestyle coaches will help guide you onto the path to healthy living with diabetes, one coach from the Y and one from the Center for Excellence in Aging and Community Wellness. With this dual-led program, diabetics will be taught techniques on how to handle fatigue, stress, pain and emotions as well as healthy eating, monitoring, appropriate use of medication and skin and foot care.
Contact your local branch to find out more about this program we offer.
