VIRTUAL Take Control of Your Diabetes, Live Healthier & LongerWednesday March 17, 2021
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
This is the final program in our series of three diabetes education programs.
Did you know that Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, lower limb amputations and adult onset blindness? They result from chronic elevated blood sugars. The good news is you can help decrease your risks of developing these complications by achieving your Diabetes ABC goals and having regular screenings recommended by the American Diabetes Association. Attend this program and start taking control of your Diabetes instead of letting your Diabetes take control of you! It is possible to live a long and healthy life with Type 2 Diabetes.
This program is funded by a grant from UMASS Memorial HealthAlliance-Clinton Hospital's Determination of Needs Fund.
