Free Program for People with Diabetes Offered in Toms River

SHARE

Are you a person with Medicare living with diabetes or know someone who is? Take control of your health through a free and fun six-week workshop series.

Meet others going through similar experiences and learn about diabetes and its risks, preventing complications, healthy eating, exercise, medication management, dealing with stress and depression, action planning, and much more. Graduates from this program have lost weight, modified their eating habits, started walking, and got their blood sugar levels under control.

“I have learned more in this workshop than I have in 10 years of fighting this disease,” said Marian, a woman with Type 2 diabetes who graduated from a previous workshop.

The free diabetes self-management workshop series will be offered at Ocean County YMCA on 1088 W Whitty Rd in Toms River, NJ 08755. Workshops are on Mondays, April 23 to June 4 (skipping May 28), from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Healthy snacks will be available and free literature will be provided.

To register, call the Ocean County YMCA at (732) 341-9622.

Quality Insights is partnering with Meals on Wheels of Ocean County and the Ocean County Office of Senior Services to offer this free diabetes workshop as part of Everyone with Diabetes Counts (EDC). The EDC program is a national initiative of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Learn more at www.qualityinsights-qin.org.
