Nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. For too many Americans, diabetes is thought of as minor hindrance rather than the life-changing disease that it is. Join Centegra Health System in raising awareness of this ever-growing disease and the people that it affects at diabetes support group meetings.
On Thursday, Oct. 25 join Centegra’s registered dietitians and special guest speaker at the Centegra Health Center-Huntley as they share tips and tricks to manage anxiety during the holidays. Or, if you are looking for that boost to help start exercising, join the diabetes support group on Thursday, Jan. 31 as one patient provides her personal testimonial about getting motivated to exercise. The diabetes support group meets on a quarterly basis to provide support for anyone with diabetes or those who support members of their family who have been diagnosed. To register, call 877-CENTEGRA (877-236-8347).
Centegra Health System will host a number of events to educate the McHenry County community on this growing disease. Stop by the information booth at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center-Huntley from 9:00am to noon on Friday, Nov. 9. Learn how to weigh less, be healthy and live more today.
