According to the American Diabetes Association, every seventeen seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes.  Many more are unaware that they are at high risk, especially those who are African American, Latino, Native American and Asian American.  Diabetes causes more deaths a year than cancer and AIDS combined.
 
These classes endeavor to provide persons with diabetes, and/or their caretakers, with the knowledge they need to properly self-manage their diabetes and enable them to lead healthier and happier lives.
 
Dr. Tomarken, Suffolk County Commissioner of Health Services, encourages, “Small changes in lifestyle can result in significant health benefits. This course can help those with diabetes to make those small changes and enable them to improve their overall health and wellbeing.”
 
Additional diabetes self-management sessions will be offered in coming weeks.
