Free pre-diabetes class offered in St. Joseph

ST. JOSEPH — A class designed to educate the public about diabetes management is coming to an area health center.

Lakeland Health is offering a free program designed to help anyone with higher-than-normal blood sugar levels learn about lifestyle changes which may help them avoid or delay the onset of diabetes.

The class will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 5, in the pharmacy conference room at the Center for Outpatient Services, located at 3900 Hollywood Road, St. Joseph.

During the first hour of the program, a registered nurse will guide attendees through the disease process of diabetes and introduce healthy lifestyle changes. The final hour will be spent with a registered dietitian who will suggest meal selections that can help people maintain health and manage weight.

This program does not require a physician referral. Pre-registration for this free class is required, and class size is limited. For more information or to register, call (269) 556-2868. Visit lakelandhealth.org or find Lakeland Health on Facebook or Twitter for more classes and events.
