ALTON — Staying active is an important part of treating diabetes.
Kristine Ward of BJC Home Care Services will present “Diabetes? Yes, You Can Exercise!” from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, in the Alton Memorial Hospital cafeteria meeting rooms.
The free presentation, sponsored by OASIS, will show participants how to incorporate activity and exercise into the daily routine and help manage diabetes. Whether or not participants take medication for diabetes, or care for someone who has diabetes, this class aims to give exercise principles for diabetics to incorporate a general wellness program into their daily lives.
Lisa James, diabetes educator at Alton Memorial, also will present information about services offered at AMH during the program.
