Are you living with diabetes? Would you like to learn more about some of the ways to control your blood sugar?

On Monday, November 26, from 5:00 to 6:30 P.M., Ruth Charne, who has diabetes herself, understands the challenges diabetics face and will present a free program entitled, “Take Control and Live Well with Diabetes.”

She will talk about some of the ways to control your blood sugar, which may help reduce your risk of diabetes-related complications. “It is worth the effort to keep your blood sugar in control,” Charne says.

Charne is a A1C Champions®. They are people who have diabetes and have learned to successfully manage it. They have walked in your shoes and understand what it’s like living day-to-day with diabetes – and they want you to know that you are not alone in your journey with diabetes. Champions share personal diabetes stories, provide support and give practical advice to help motivate you to make healthy lifestyle choices and strive to reach your blood sugar goals.

This is a free presentation, including a buffet dinner, but space is limited so please pre-register by calling Sumer Higgins at 930-2650, or e-mail her at shiggins@wcgh.org.

The presentation will take place at Waldo County General Hospital’s Education Center.
