Diabetes management programs set for Center

The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) of Deep East Texas will be holding a set of

workshops on Diabetes Self-Management in Center.

The workshops are scheduled for six consecutive weeks. They will start on Thursday, Sept. 20, and continue through

Thursday, Oct. 25.

The Diabetes Self-Management workshop will be held from 9 a.m. until 11

a.m. each Thursday. They will be held at the Shelby County Senior Site located at 124 Haley

Drive in Center.

There are no fees for the workshop, officials said.

“The information, tips and techniques we have to offer are geared towards people

who want to help themselves, or the people they care for, better manage their diabetes,”

said Holly Anderson, the Area Agency on Aging of Deep East Texas Program Director.

“To take advantage of the information and techniques you need to be motivated enough to sit through the sessions held once a week for six weeks,” she said.
