Rutland Regional to offer Type 2 Diabetes management program, Saturdays

RUTLAND—According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Type 2 Diabetes accounts for about 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes in adults. It can cause serious health problems like heart disease, blindness, and kidney failure. Through the Diabetes Self-Management Program sponsored by Community Health Improvement at Rutland Regional Medical Center, participants can get the support they need to manage their diabetes and prevent those serious problems.

The program, “Healthier Living Workshop: Diabetes” will be offered Saturdays, Aug. 26-Sept. 30, from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at 433 West St., Rutland. It will offer a small group workshop for people dealing with Type 2 Diabetes. The workshop is led by trained leaders, at least one of whom has diabetes. It is designed to help with problem solving and action planning, healthy eating, exercise, monitoring blood sugar, managing stress, and handling sick days.

Those who have completed the program report big improvements such as eating healthier, feeling less depressed, and having a better relationship with physicians.

To register for this free program, contact Corissa Burnell at 802-776-5507 or email cjburnell@rrmc.org.
