Six week course runs on Tuesday mornings from Nov. 12 to Dec. 17.

The Diabetes - PATH (Personal Action Towards Health) workshop is a six-week workshop designed to provide the skills and tools needed by people living with Type 2 diabetes to improve their health and manage their symptoms. As a result, participants are better equipped to face the daily challenge of living with diabetes. Two trained leaders conduct the workshop (one or both also live with Diabetes).

Topics will include:

  • How to deal with the symptoms of diabetes, fatigue, pain, hyper/hypoglycemia, stress, and emotional problems such as depression, anger, fear and frustration
  • Learn about exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance
  • Healthy eating, meal planning, label reading
  • Appropriate use of medication
  • Working more effectively with health care providers

Participants will make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program.
