Diabetes PATH workshop offered at COA

Beginning April 6, Diabetes PATH (Personal Action Towards Health) will be offered at the Cass County COA’s Front Street Crossing in Dowagiac. This program is offered by the COA through a partnership with Region IV Area Agency on Aging.

Diabetes PATH is a six-week Chronic Disease Self-Management Program that teaches practical skills for living a healthy life with diabetes. Developed and tested by Stanford University, the workshop focuses on self-care, learning new coping strategies, and sharing personal experiences with other group members. It is designed to be part of an individual’s current medical treatment.  Research has shown that people who have attended this six-session workshop feel better, are less limited by their illness, and spend less time at the doctor or in the hospital.

Classes are scheduled to meet weekly at Front Street Crossing, 227 S. Front St., Dowagiac, on Wednesdays from April 6 to May 11. Each session will run from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Cost for the six-week workshop is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.  Family members, friends, and caregivers are also encouraged to attend. Class sizes are limited and pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, please contact Adrienne at the Cass County COA at (269) 445-8110 or (800) 323-0390 ext. 232.
