Free Live Well with Diabetes Workshop Starts August 17, 2021


The Naugatuck Valley Health District has partnered with the Southwestern Connecticut Area Agency on Aging to offer an in-person session of the popular Live Well with Diabetes workshop for adults in the Naugatuck Valley area with diabetes or pre-diabetes or those that care for someone with diabetes. This program helps them learn new skills to manage their diabetes. Once a week for six weeks, two trained Live Well leaders will facilitate the two-and-a-half-hour group sessions at the Naugatuck Valley Health Department, 98 Bank Street, Seymour, CT. Participants will learn about healthy eating, high and low blood sugar, being active, sick day guidelines, tips for dealing with stress, foot care, making weekly action plans, and how to set small and achievable goals. Participants will be given at no cost the book Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, and an exercise CD.
