Extension offices offering virtual diabetes education series

"Do Well Be Well with Diabetes" designed to assist patients who have recently been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service of Shelby, Harrison and Rusk County have partnered to offer a comprehensive diabetes education series called, “Do Well Be Well with Diabetes.”

The five-session series will provide participants with the latest information on managing diabetes by focusing on “how food affects blood glucose,” “eating the right number of carbohydrates”, “going beyond the diet and physical activity: improving blood glucose control with medication,” and “celebrating diabetes control and avoiding complications.”

Do Well Be Well with Diabetes was designed by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension specialists to assist patients who have recently been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, have had diabetes for many years, and for the spouses and caregivers of loved ones with diabetes.

Nine lessons will be taught over a period of five classes and will teach individuals about diabetes and how to manage the disease.

Each lesson will be presented by local health care professional guest speakers with expertise in the subject area. Classes will be offered VIRTUALLY every Thursday in October from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. Registration for the five-week series is $12.
