Health Department to Host Healthy Living with Diabetes Classes

Greenup County Health Department is offering a comprehensive series of classes called Healthy Living with Diabetes.  Each class will meet from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday evenings beginning April 16th and running through April 30th. The classes will meet at the Greenup County Health Department’s Health Education Center on US 23 in Greenup, KY.  The Classes will also feature special guest speakers, recipes, door prizes, and snacks.

Eve Greene, the health department’s Licensed Diabetes Educator said, “About 25.8 million Americans (8.3 percent of the population) have diabetes, 7 million of whom do not know they have the disease.
Diabetes is very complex and requires continuous medical care and risk reduction strategies including ongoing patient self- management education and support. There is significant evidence proving that support and education improve diabetes outcome.” 

For more information and to register for the classes, contact Eve Greene at 473-9838 ext. 110 or evem.greene@ky.gov.
