• Bassett Healthcare Network Offers Free Workshops on Living Well with Diabetes to its Patients

    March 26, 2018

    What:  Living Well with Diabetes is a free interactive seven-week workshop series for Bassett Healthcare Network patients living with diabetes. The program is free, although registration is required.

    Why:  One recent workshop participant commented that the “workshop provides information on diabetes whether you've just been diagnosed or have had diabetes for a length of time.”  

    Participants gain support from peers who have similar concerns and learn proven techniques and practical ways to manage diabetes. The workshop explores techniques to deal with symptoms, appropriate exercise options, healthy eating, medication and working more effectively with health care providers. 

    Each workshop participant will receive a copy of the companion book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, and an audio relaxation CD, Relaxation for Mind and Body.  Participants also receive a $40 grocery store gift card for attending four of the first six sessions and another $10 gift card for attending session seven.

    When:  Workshops begin the second week of April and are held weekly. Afternoon or evening sessions are available, depending on location.                                                          

    Where:  Workshop locations include Cherry Valley, Cobleskill, Cooperstown, Hamilton, Herkimer, Little Falls, Norwich, Oneida, Oneonta, Richfield Springs, Sherburne and Sidney. 

    Details:  Sign up today and take control of your diabetes, instead of letting it control you! For more information and to register, call 607-547-3360 or email livingwellsessions@bassett.org.
