Free diabetes education classes to be offered in San Tan Valley

The Pinal County Public Health District will sponsor free diabetes classes at the San Tan Valley and Maricopa public health clinics this winter and spring. All classes will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Diabetes is largely self-managed with 99 percent of the care becoming the responsibility of patients and their families or caregivers.

These classes will offer up-to-date, practical how-to information and skill building on monitoring, healthy eating, being active, problem solving, medications and reducing risks, according to a press release.

To reserve a spot, call Kathryn at 520-866-7315.  Walk-ins are welcome.
