Monday December 17th – The importance of heart healthiness and diabetes. We welcome Cardiologist Dr. Joel Strom to inform us of the correlation between diabetes and our heart. It is important to maintain a healthy blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol, as diabetes can tend to interrupt the normal tissue of our heart and blood vessels.
Due to the holidays, there will not be any education sessions on December 24 or December 31st. Please join us back on Monday, January 7th.
Monday January 7th – Back to basics. Please join us for a refresher of the basics of diabetes. We will be playing Diabetes Jeopardy and will have prizes for the winners!
Monday January 14th – New Year’s resolutions. Was there something you wanted to change or begin to add to your daily routine as a resolution for 2019? But maybe you don’t have the motivation to change or need someone/something to help keep you accountable? For this education session, we will be learning about appropriate goal setting and how to incorporate our resolution into daily life.
Monday January 21st – The clinic will be closed in observance of MLK day. There will NOT be an education session.
Monday January 28th – Reducing stress through meditation. The impact stress has on blood sugar levels warrants a need to slow down and remove ourselves from the triggers of stress. Please join us for a 30-minute mediation and relaxation session to reduce stress from the holidays.
