BENNINGTON, Vt. — Type 2 diabetes is a serious disease that causes painful and debilitating complications like nerve damage, kidney disease, heart failure, and eye problems, to name a few. 
Learning more about diabetes and how to make important changes can help prevent these serious problems. The Diabetes Education department at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center and the Vermont Blueprint for Health have teamed up to provide a Diabetes Self-Management Workshop starting at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022, virtually via Zoom.
The workshop offered to small groups by a specially trained leader. It is for people with type 2 diabetes. Classes meet once a week for 6 weeks. Each session is 2 ½ hours long. Through the workshop, participants will get the support they need to manage diabetes.
The program is designed to help with:
  • Problem solving and action planning
  • Healthy eating
  • Exercise
  • Monitoring blood sugar
  • Managing stress
  • Handling sick days
People who complete the class say they see big improvements. They are able to eat better, feel less depressed, and have better relationships with their doctors.
