In praise of UPMC diabetes program
I have just completed a six-session diabetes management course presented at UPMC Altoona.
It was delivered by three outstanding health professionals. The presenters were engaging, compassionate and informed. Pat, Monica and Tom are experts and committed to the art and science of diabetes management.
Class size was small and afforded one-to-one discussion. Topics are precise and relevant and easy to understand. Sessions are geared to assist the diabetic and his/her support person in the design of a meal plan, management of stress, monitoring of blood sugar levels and the establishment of exercise plans.
There is no actual cost to this course, except your time and attention.
I can truly report that this experience has been a life-changing event for me. All of my lovely classmates and I got an “A” grade and a chance to live better lives. If you are diabetic, give yourself a chance to learn how you can manage your disease.
You and your loved ones will have no regrets spending the time.
