About the workshop: An Evidence-Based self-management program originally developed at Stanford University, now managed by the Self-Management Resource Center, designed for people with Type 2 Diabetes as well as their family members and caregivers.  This program has been proven to achieve positive health outcomes and reduced health care expenditures. The program consists of a workshop that meets once a week for 2 ½ hours per week for six weeks, led by two trained peer educators, who may also have diabetes.

Topics include:

• Techniques to deal with the symptoms of diabetes, fatigue, pain, hyper/hypoglycemia, stress, and emotional problems such as depression, anger, fear and frustration

• Appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance

• Healthy eating

• Appropriate use of medication

• Working more effectively with health care providers

• Participants will make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program.
