Take charge of your diabetes with upcoming Grass Valley class

Submitted to The Union

Connecting Point is hosting a free workshop to help Nevada County residents prioritize their long-term health.

The Diabetes Self-Management workshop is for people with diabetes or pre-diabetes and their caregivers. Participants are encouraged to get proactive, take control of their health and can gain valuable tools to make more informed health decisions. The six-week class will provide students with a better understanding of the human body, a chance to learn about risk factors for diabetes, and gain tools for self-care, symptom management, exercise and meal planning.

Diabetes Self-Management classes are from 2 to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, February 11 through March 17 at Connecting Point, 208 Sutton Way in Grass Valley.

All Connecting Point classes are free and open to the public. Diabetes Self-Management is offered in partnership with Dignity Health Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital with assistance from the Nevada County Public Health Department.
