Diabetes health class

Social worker Shirley Glover discusses the importance of healthy eating habits with dietician Helen Crome.

Wimmera Health Care Group is offering a series of education sessions for people with diabetes.
Dietitian Helen Crome said evening sessions would run over four Thursday nights starting on October 1.
“Evening sessions are being offered to allow working people to participate in the program,” Helen said.
“We will cover topics such as how to test at home, blood pressure and blood glucose reviews, medications, diet, activity and lower limb complications,” she said.
“These sessions will give newly diagnosed people an opportunity to learn about diabetes for the first time, while those already living with diabetes can update their knowledge.”
Helen said there would be an opportunity to ask questions and chat informally with other people with diabetes and their families.
“Participants will come away with the skills and knowledge to better manage their diabetes,” she said.
Helen said the sessions would be in the Community Rehabilitation lounge at the Arapiles building in Baillie Street, Horsham. Sessions start at 7pm and conclude at 8.30pm with supper provided.
“There is a small fee of $6.50 for participants, but partners and friends can come along at no cost,” Helen said.
Bookings are essential and must be made via Arapiles reception on 5381 9333.
For further details, contact Community Rehabilitation staff on 5381 9289.
