Review for DIABETES ASSOCIATION OF GREATER CLEVELAND, Cleveland, OH, USA
Diabetes Partnership Cleveland Is where a group of women meet to learn from each other’s diabetic experiences as well as from monthly speakers who come with various topics to stimulate and get us going toward better health habits and lifestyle changes. Topics like: releasing stress, relaxation, how to pick the best foods, reading food labels, choosing good foods when dining out, which ingredients to be aware of, how to modify meals, and food substitutions. Topics are discussed that you know but have forgotten and it is good to bring them back to life. The total experience keeps you in check and helps with your own specific goal setting. Learning is ongoing and rewarding.
Through classes from this group I had the opportunity to become a diabetic ambassador. I’ve attended several workshops and health fairs to inform people of the problems of becoming a diabetic, as well as how to handle being a diabetic, the different types of diabetics, and informing them of the symptoms, what questions to ask their doctors and how to read and understand their diabetic test results, and the importance of exercise and food choices.
They are sponsoring another class: Take Charge of Your Health that I am excited to attend, it’s a chronic Disease Self-Management program which help you control your chronic disease rather than letting it control you.
I’m so glad I became a part of diabetes Partnership Cleveland. I enjoy talking to people about diabetes also learning from them as well.
