Comprehensive Diabetes Workshops begins next week

Cox Medical Center Branson will host two comprehensive diabetes workshops starting next week. The 10-hour courses cover everything from diagnosis to meal planning, according Valerie Newcome, diabetes education coordinator and outpatient dietitian.

The class is recognized by the American Diabetes Association as meeting national standards for diabetes self-management education. Newcome and Joan Heil, a registered nurse and certified diabetes coordinator, teach the course.

A physician’s referral is required so anyone interested in attending should talk to their doctor.
The next morning sessions will be held from 9 a.m.-noon November 4, 11 and 18. The next afternoon sessions will be held from 1–4 p.m. November 6, 13 and 20.
