Registration is now underway at JRMC for a free six-week class in diabetes education.
The class is called DEEP, which stands for Diabetes Empowerment Education Program. Sessions will begin on Wednesday, August 23 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. and will continue to meet each Thursday for a total of six weeks. Individuals with diabetes or pre-diabetes will learn how the disease affects the body, how to monitor and understand blood sugar numbers, and how to shop and cook in a healthier manner.
There is no charge for attending the class, but space is limited and registration is required. For more information or to sign up, call Lisa Duke at 870-541-7195.
