Learn about diabetes and how to manage the disease at an evening class in July at Baptist Hospital East.
Baptist Hospital East is offering a three-part evening diabetes class from 6-9 on Wednesdays, July 11, July 18 and July 25 at the hospital, 4000 Kresge Way.
A registered nurse and a dietitian present these classes, which review the basics of diabetes for persons previously diagnosed and reinforce physicians’ orders for individuals newly diagnosed with the disease. With the help of these professionals, participants and family members will learn ways to manage diabetes, including proper diet, exercise and progress monitoring. Patients will receive individualized meal plans as well as glucose monitors. Additionally, participants serve as a resource to one another for questions or problem discussion.
A fee, reimbursable by most health insurance plans, is charged to cover costs. Insurance will be billed. Friends and family are invited at no extra charge. Sign up by calling (502) 897-8831.
