North Oaks Diabetes Education to Explore Goal Setting at May Meeting

Goal-setting can be a helpful strategy for diabetes management and self-care when it comes to nutrition, exercise, sticking to your medication regime, health checks and more.

Join North Oaks Community Health Educator and Health Coach Grace Stiegler to learn how to break down big diabetes goals into smaller, more achievable tasks during a free group meeting sponsored by North Oaks Diabetes Education, at 4 p.m., Wednesday, May 12. Whether you have a plan or aren’t sure where to start, Stiegler can help you identify where you are in the change process and help you identify a path forward that sets you up for success.

The meeting will be held at North Oaks Diagnostic Center, located at 15837 Paul Vega, M.D., Drive in Hammond in compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state of Louisiana COVID-19 safety measures. Participant masking and temperature checks will be required, and seating will be spaced out for appropriate social distancing. Provider referrals are not necessary; however, seating is limited, and registration is required. Reserve your space by calling (985) 243-9106.
