June 12, 2019: People Inc. has joined with the Western New York Integrated Care Collaborative (WNYICC) to present a series of free health and wellness workshops for people looking to manage their health. The classes, known as Choose Healthy Western New York Workshops, span a number of topics and seek to assist people living with diabetes and chronic disease.

The next program in this series is the Diabetes Self-Management Workshop, which includes techniques to help manage the symptoms of diabetes, appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance, healthy eating and working more effectively with health care providers. Chronic Disease Self-Management Workshops incorporate tips to maintain a full and active lifestyle, skills that enable participants to confront the challenges of living with chronic disease and weekly action planning.

Workshop curriculum was developed and tested by Stanford University and is an evidence-based program. People Inc. staff members have been certified to instruct the courses. Each workshop is six weeks long, meeting once a week for two and a half hours. 

The Diabetes Self-Management Workshop will be held on Saturdays, July 27 through August 31, from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at People Inc. Marigold Senior Living, 3026 Grand Island Boulevard, Grand Island. It will include a free consultation with a registered dietitian for qualified participants.
