Free diabetes education classes: Schedule for October

The Everyone with Diabetes Counts (EDC) program is providing several opportunities around the state for people with Medicare to participate in free diabetes education classes.
The free classes, part of a program led by the West Virginia Medical Institute (WVMI), are open to people with Medicare who have diabetes, their families and caregivers. Nurses, community health workers and volunteers trained by WVMI will cover topics that include managing every aspect of diabetes, from nutrition to exercise to important tests and exams.
Classes include interactive demonstrations such as a “build your plate” visualization of fat, sugar and salt content for a meal; props to demonstrate healthy versus diseased kidney filtration; games and storytelling. For a fun and engaging learning experience, please join us for a class listed below.
Upcoming classes include Greenbrier County – White Sulphur Springs Public Library, 203 West Main Street, White Sulphur Springs, Oct. 8, 15 and 22 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
