Residents working to manage pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes are invited to attend free Alberta Health Services (AHS) information sessions online.
Diabetes the Basics is offered as a four-part group session led by AHS professionals who share their expertise, provide information and encourage discussions that can help participants better manage their condition. The session is offered to people at risk of developing diabetes, as well as those who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes.
The information session, which launches next month, is an online version of AHS’ Diabetes the Basics workshops, which are offered regularly in communities across Central Zone. The classes are moving online in order to follow public health guidelines on physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Regular Diabetes the Basics classes will resume in communities across the Central Zone when the pandemic ends.
