RHA Educating Residents about Diabetes

ROXBORO, N.C.--The first in a series of sessions to educate Roxboro Housing Authority residents and persons within the community about diabetes is off to a good start.

The Living Healthy with Diabetes self-management program, which kicked off on Mon., July 1, 2019, is for people who have Type 2 diabetes or who may have been told they are borderline or pre-diabetic.

Jennifer Grable of the Cooperative Extension Service in Person Co. showed attendees how to better manage their condition and provided ways to control diabetes instead of it controlling them.

This program is provided by the extension agency, Person Co. Health Dept. and the Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments--Area Agency on Aging.

Registration is still open and is free.  The class continues each Monday from 2-4 p.m. up to Aug. 6. at Lee Gardens Community Center at 808 Lyle St., Roxboro. 

To register, contact RHA FSS Coord. Larry Mayfield at (336) 647-4340
