Living with Type 2 Diabetes for Seniors (over 70)

When: Thursday, February 6, 2020 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

This comprehensive program assists participants to develop a detailed understanding of type 2 diabetes and its management. It incorporates: how diabetes is diagnosed and managed using various tools such as healthy eating, exercise, medications, label reading and preventing complications.

Case studies are used to provide opportunities for application of knowledge learned. Participants work on incorporating behaviour change into their lives while practicing goal setting. The program is adjusted to meet the needs of seniors with a later start time in the morning and more opportunity for casual group discussion.

Workshop dates: 

  • February 6, 2020 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
  • February 13, 2020 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

This program runs bi-monthly with two half-day sessions.

Participants should plan to attend both half-day sessions.
