Diabetes Self-Management Education
The Suffolk County Department of Health Services, with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County, will be holding a six-session series on diabetes self-management in the Riverhead area starting in September. Topics will include keeping one's blood sugar in a target range, maintaining a balanced diet and the use of exercise and medication. Up to date information on treatment will be a major theme as well as getting the most out of a diabetic lifestyle.
Sessions will be held on Thursday mornings from September 14th through October 19th, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Riverhead Library, 330 Court Street. Though the classes are free, seating is limited and registration is required. To register, call 727-3228, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
