Quincy Medical Group is offering a summer series titled, “Living Your Best Life with Diabetes.” The series will include three sessions, and is offered for free to community members.
Loretta Musholt, RN, BSN, CDE, is a Certified Diabetes Educator with QMG and will lead the sessions. She says these sessions will offer both support and education for individuals living with diabetes. “This is your chance to review your current lifestyle with diabetes and see if there are any small changes you might like to make. When diabetes is in good control, usually you feel better on a daily basis, and you are less at risk to have diabetes related health problems later,” she said.
Participants can attend all or just those of interest to them. Sessions will include:
June 5: Sugar Tune Up: Brief review of basics of sugar control
July 3: Finding Your Weigh Down: Weight management tips
August 7: Gadget Update: Continuous glucose monitoring, blood glucose meters that connect with apps, etc.
Each session will take place from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on the first floor of QMG’s 1025 Maine St. location. To register, call QMG Nutrition Services at (217) 222-6550, ext. 3117.
