Those who live with diabetes know it is a challenging condition and must be monitored closely. This includes blood work, medications, making daily choices about the 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 sessions to be held at the Rural Outreach Center (ROC), 730 Olean Road, East Aurora, beginning Oct. 10. Other dates include Oct. 17, 24, 30 and Nov. 14, all from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
