Blanchard Public Library takes a look into healthy living, specifically for those affected by diabetes, with a six week Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP), beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 13, and running through May 18. The classes are offered free of charge and all take place at the library.
Representatives from the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative will lead the classes, which will include training on various tools to help those with diabetes manage their blood sugar.
It also will look at topics like eating, exercise, stress management and medication management to help prevent or delay complications that come from uncontrolled blood sugar.
The classes are for ages 18 and up. Space is limited, so registration is required in advance to attend.
