Naugatuck Valley Health District has partnered with Griffin Hospital and the Southwestern Connecticut 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 hour group sessions at the Seymour Community Center, 20 Pine 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.
Class size is limited to sixteen participants and pre-registration is required. A new group is starting on Monday afternoons from September 17 – November 8, 2021 from 1:00-3:00PM. To sign up, contact 203-888-0406 extension 1 or visit www.seymourcommunityservices.com.
Live Well is sponsored by The Southwestern Connecticut Area Agency on Aging, State Unit on Aging and Connecticut Department of Public Health through grants from the Administration on Aging and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Live Well with Diabetes is an evidence-based self-management program developed at Stanford University.
