Lindsborg Community Hospital will offer a free workshop series for people living with diabetes and their caregivers. The six-week workshop series helps people gain self-confidence in controlling their symptoms, better manage their health and lead fuller lives.

The workshops are highly interactive and promote the development of skills necessary to lead healthy lives with diabetes. The workshop series is designed to compliment medical treatments and education provided by healthcare providers. People living with diabetes and their caregivers who attend will receive a free copy of “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions.”

The self-management workshops are a great opportunity for individuals with diabetes and their caregivers to learn skills that can change lives,” Family Health Care Clinic Director Karna Peterson said. “The workshop series was developed by Stanford University and is being utilized around the world to improve self-management skills for those with diabetes. We are very excited to partner with the Kansas Foundation for Medical Care to bring these workshops to our community.”

An information meeting with certified instructors Jayne Norlin and Cynthia Woodard will be held at 5:30 a.m..  April 22 at Lindsborg Community Hospital. The six-week workshop will begin April 29 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. 

This workshop is made possible through partnership with Kansas Self-Management Education. For more information contact Family Health Care Clinic, 785-227-3371 or visit www.selfmanageks.org.
