Prescriptions for Health to Discuss Diabetes
Next presentation to feature several guest speakers
March 17, 2010
The next topic for Prescriptions for Health is “Diabetes: Day to Day.” The program will inform those with pre-diabetes and diabetes to learn more about managing his or her condition. Family members and caregivers are also welcome. Prescriptions for Health is open to the public and free of charge.
The diabetes presentation will take place on Thursday, April 1, from 5–7 p.m., in the Bass Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital and includes free dinner and dessert. Guest speakers will cover a variety of diabetes issues and participants will also be guided though simple stretching exercises.
Nancy Thomas, RN, CDE, one of the certified diabetes educators who will be on hand said, “People with diabetes frequently have problems with the nerves and circulation in their feet which can lead to serious problems including amputation. Through education such as this, we can lower the number of diabetes complications.”
