If you live with diabetes and would like to improve your health and sense of well-being, this class is for you. Participants make weekly action plans, share experiences and help each other solve problems as they carry out their self-management program.

Family members, friends and partners are welcome. For information or to register, stop by the Mower County Senior Center front desk or call 1-507-433-2370 to let us know you are coming.
