More info: “Diabetes Self-Management” is a workshop series developed by Stanford University for individuals who are either living with type 2 diabetes. Trained leaders teach workshop participants how to better manage the symptoms of diabetes through exercise, healthy eating, stress management, communication with healthcare providers, and preventing complications related to diabetes. The foundation of the workshop series is creating personalized action plans that can help individuals attain their goals through small, workable steps. Workshops are highly supportive, informative, social, and fun.
The Healthy Living program at LifePath offers six, evidence-based programs that focus on managing chronic conditions, diabetes, and pain; falls prevention and balance; healthy eating; and exercise. Groups meet weekly for several weeks in different communities and are led by local volunteer leaders.
