Personal Action Toward Health (PATH) for Diabetes 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). Participants will learn how to deal with the symptoms of diabetes, including fatigue, pain, hyper/hypoglycemia, stress and emotional problems such as depression, anger, fear and frustration. They will learn about exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance, as well as healthy eating, including meal planning and label reading. Other topics include appropriate use of medication and working 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.

This six-week course will be held each Thursday from April 17 through May 22, 2014, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Beaumont Family Medicine Center, 44250 Dequindre Road, Sterling Heights, MI 48314, in classrooms A & B (near the Sterling Café). The building is located 1/2 mile north of Square Lake Road and across the street from Beaumont Hospital.
