Diabetes self-management course to be held in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN – A diabetes self-management workshop series is scheduled to begin June 2 in the First Presbyterian Church of Youngstown, 100 Church St.

Sponsored by the county Healthy Department and Office for the Aging, the six-week program will be held Tuesdays from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The course complements the health care an individual may already be receiving by helping to enhance problem-solving and decision-making skills to confront the challenges of living with diabetes. Participants also will learn how to improve food choices, increase physical activity and coping skills to maintain weight loss and healthy lifestyles.

Registration can be made by calling the Office for the Aging at 438-3030 or the Health Department’s Nursing Division at 278-1900.
