In this hectic world, with all the running around you do between work, family, and life in general, it is sometimes hard to remember to take time for yourself and to attend to all of your diabetes care needs. As a person with diabetes, yourto-do list has an added number of items on it -- annual checkups, periodic lab work, foot exams and eye visits, not to mention daily monitoring and assessment of your food and activity choices. It can easily become overwhelming.
This half-day program offers you the chance to take a deep breath and time out to conduct a quick self-assessment -- a chance to see if you, the real boss of your diabetes, have all the information you need to take optimal care of yourself. We will arm you with a comprehensive care guide to help break down for you all of the areas of care that those with diabetes need to consider. It provides check lists, referral sources and ample resources to help manage your care.
Endocrinologist Christopher Bruno, D.O. will provide an overview of some easy ways to stay on top of your care in an informal and informational lecture. Ample time will be allotted to explore the vendor mall before and after the presentation.
Light refreshments provided.
Show your diabetes "who's boss" and join us for this educational and enjoyable day all about you.
DID YOU KNOW?
The best way to control your diabetes is to educate yourself! Most insurance companies provide 10 hours of DSMT (Diabetes Self-Management Training) and 3 hours of MNT (Medical Nutrition Therapy) in the first year of diagnosis and 2 hours each of DSMT and MNT ever year following. The Diabetes Self-Management Program at The Chester County Hospital offers classes for issues that arise throughout the continuum of care from pre-diabetes to advanced management techniques like living with an Insulin Pump. And, the best part is, we will do all the work for you. Just call and we will follow up with your doctor to make arrangements. Take advantage of your benefits and take charge of your diabetes by calling 610.738.2835 or emailing email@example.com.
