Diabetes Information Sessions Offered

August 27, 2017

Farmington, Maine

Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County (HCC) is offering two drop-in information sessions on Healthy Lifestyle, a program of MaineHealth that is implemented in partnership with the National Diabetes Prevention Program.

This program is available to any interested community member for a fee and at no cost to Franklin Community Health Network employees and their spouses/partners who are covered by the MaineHealth medical insurance plan. This program is not designed for people who have already been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

Healthy Lifestyles is a diabetes prevention program from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that teaches lifestyle changes to prevent Type 2 diabetes. This year-long program will help participants: learn how to eat healthier, be more physically active, and manage stress; develop skills to make healthier choices to lose weight; and get long-term support to stick with the changes.

Anyone interested in learning more about the program can stop in at his or her convenience on Wednesday, September 6, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. or 5-6:30 p.m. in the Chisholm Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital.

Please RSVP to Ellen Thorne at the HCC by email ethorne@fchn.org or call 779-2357.

Instructors will include Ellen Thorne, Cheryl Moody, and Sabrina Lopizzo.
