Diabetes Education Seminar with Charles Wiggins on Nov. 13 | Health
It is estimated that nearly 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, including an estimated 7 million who remain undiagnosed. Diabetes is a chronic, widespread condition characterized by high blood sugar in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin, the hormone needed to transport glucose from the blood into the cells of the body for energy. On Nov. 13, South Central Regional Medical Center will host a free seminar with diabetes A1C Champion © Charles Wiggins to discuss his personal journey through diabetes and how he has managed to maintain control and helped others along the way.
Wiggins will deliver a free educational program at South Central Place to share diabetes self-management and lifestyle strategies based on extensive training through living with diabetes. As a member of the A1C Champions © Program, supported by Sanofi, Wiggins has first-hand experience with overcoming the challenges and obstacles with diabetes.
Topics for the seminar include: achieving good glucose control, learning about effective self-management, developing a healthy lifestyle, overcoming fears associated with diabetes, and find resources for diabetes support.
If you or someone you know is struggling with diabetes or has an A1C that is 7% or above, this informative, free seminar can provide the motivation it takes to achieve better glucose control. Many patients have found through these seminars that they do not have to travel their journey with diabetes alone.
To learn more about the free seminar, please call Greg Stueve at South Central Diabetes Education at 601-426-4700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The seminar is open to public and will be held on Nov. 13 at 1 p.m. at South Central Place, located at 2260 HWY 15 North in Laurel. This seminar is sponsored by the South Central Diabetes Education Department at South Central Regional Medical Center. Free refreshments will be served.
