doctorThe Purcell Public Library will partner with the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative for a second six-week series of Diabetes Empowerment Education Programs (DEEP), at 10 a.m. beginning Thursday, April 21, and continuing for six consecutive weeks on Thursdays. The programs take place at the library.

The free interactive classes are developed to help people understand diabetes and teach specific things they can do to manage the disease, prevent or delay complications, and improve their well-being. Each class session will last for 90 minutes.

The classes are led by instructors from the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative, which is a program of the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center, Donald W Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine.

Classes are for ages 18 and up, and registration is required to attend.
