Take Charge of your Health with Better Choices, Better Health Workshops
Friday, March 28, 2014

When you’re living with diabetes sometimes it’s nice to have a little extra support. If you or someone you know has diabetes, you can take control of your health. And you don’t have to do it alone.

The Better Choices, Better Health – Diabetes workshops let you learn from people who know what you’re going through. Led by a trained facilitator, you’ll share and solve problems with other people who have diabetes and discover new ways to:

  • Make food that’s good for you and enjoyable
  • Manage and keep track of your blood sugar levels
  • Start or stay on track with a regular exercise routine
  • Communicate better with your doctor, family and friends

This program is offered in addition to and does not replace any other diabetes management programs your health plan may offer.

Who are the sponsors?

Our health plan is collaborating with the YMCA, OASIS and Stanford University to sponsor these workshops. The sponsors are also studying the benefits of the Better Choices, Better Health – Diabetes workshops. The study is funded by the National Council on Aging. Participation in the study is voluntarily. Not everyone will qualify for the study, but everyone may participate in the workshop anyway.
