New Quarterly Program of Offer Education on Diabetes

FAIRBURY – Those who live with diabetes need encouragement, support and education as they strive to maintain and improve their health. To assist with these needs, Jefferson Community Health Center’s diabetes education team will begin offering quarterly updates in March.

On March 23, anyone who has or is interested in diabetes can attend Diabetes Update from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center, 2200 H St. The program is FREE, and preregistration is not required.

The update promises to be interactive, hands-on, and fun – and packed with information and education.

During the first quarterly update participants will learn how to balance with the best of them, sleep for the night, put a twist on 4 o’clock coffee, and improve memory.

Coordinators for this program are Jill Duis RN, CDE (certified diabetes educator), and Lisa Edeal, RDN, LMNT (registered dietitian nutritionist), both part of JCHC’s Diabetes Education team.

Anyone interested in more information should contact Duis at (402) 729-6890.
