Have you been diagnosed with pre-diabetes? Before someone develops type 2 diabetes, it almost always begins with a diagnosis of “pre-diabetes”—a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. It’s important to know that diabetes doesn’t have to be inevitable or can be delayed, if you learn how to take charge of your pre-diabetes now.
Each Living on the Border With Pre-Diabetes workshop is designed for individuals diagnosed with pre-diabetes, as well as anyone who would like to learn more about pre-diabetes and diabetes. Classes are taught by Certified Diabetes Instructors and Registered Dietitian.

• Tuesday, February 5, 2013, 9:00am to 12:00 noon

Sessions are taught by Mary Kay Marciniak, RN, Director of Diabetes Education and Jean Maslowski, RD, LD, and are based upon the American Diabetic Association (ADA) standard of care and the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) Guidelines.
