Those who live with diabetes know it is a challenging condition that must be monitored closely. This includes bloodwork, medications, making daily choices about foods that are eaten, exercise routine, fluid intake and planning ahead to maintain good health.
The public is invited to come and join other individuals who want to learn more about diabetes by participating in five free seminar/discussion sessions to be held at the Rural Outreach Center at 730 Olean Road, East Aurora, beginning Oct. 15. Other dates include Oct. 22 and 29, and Nov. 5 and 12. Each seminar is from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Don Birdd will lead the free seminar sessions. Birdd is a retired Buffalo State College science professor who has lived with diabetes for more than 20 years. He will provide handouts from the American Diabetes Association as well as reputable websites and other sources.
Family members and care providers are also invited to attend these sessions. To register, please contact Ruthie Hunt, RN, BSN at 220-4834, or email Don Birdd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
