For those with diabetes, the holidays can be challenging because of the
focus on food and disruptions to daily routines.
Learn how to holiday-proof your diabetes management plan
and enjoy the festivities by attending a free group meeting, sponsored by
North Oaks Diabetes Education, from 3-4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13.
The meeting will be held on the second floor of
North Oaks Diagnostic Center at 15837 Paul Vega, M.D., Drive in Hammond. Provider referrals and pre-registration
are not required.
North Oaks Dietetic Interns Courtney Cornett and Brittany Francisco (pictured
above, from left) will share holiday tips to help you keep your blood
sugar levels on track. Time for participants to share their own experiences,
tips, ideas and concerns also is planned.
North Oaks Diabetes Education offers group meetings on a monthly basis
to discuss insights on current health topics to help participants live
their healthiest lives. The meetings are free and open to those with diabetes,
their families and friends.
The American Diabetes Association recognizes North Oaks Diabetes Education
as meeting the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.
