Better Choices, Better Health-Diabetes

Living with diabetes can present many challenges, such as knowing how and when to eat, living your life so you can avoid complications, and getting the support you want from family and friends. A better Choices, Better Health-Diabetes self-management workshop can help you manage these concerns. Benefit from support of others who know what you are going through. 

Developed and tested at Stanford University, a Better Choices, Better Health-Diabetes workshop can help you: 

  • Understand how to eat with diabetes while still making it enjoyable
  • Monitor and manage your blood sugar
  • Start or maintain a regular exercise program
  • Communicate better with family, friends, and your medical team
  • Design your own self-management program
  • And much more

Workshops are located in St. Louis, St.Charles, and Alton. Workshop settings include, but not limited to: Senior Center, Community Centers, Hospitals, Libraries, and Independent Living Facilities.

"The workshop teaches you not just what to do, but how to create an action plan to stick with it."
