For Immediate Release: Friday, June 3, 2022
The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, in partnership with the Maryland Living Well Center of Excellence, will offer a free community-based Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) beginning Wednesday, June 22. The six-week series will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the Germantown Library. The Germantown Library is located at l9840 Century Blvd. in Germantown.
The Diabetes Self-Management Program was created at Stanford University and is a nationally recognized diabetes prevention and management program. The program covers the physical aspect of managing diabetes, as well as the emotional aspect and is designed to improve an individual’s A1C and reduce complications associated with diabetes.
The program has demonstrated proven health benefits and complements the diabetic medical management services people receive from their providers. Participants will enhance their ability to maintain active and fulfilling lifestyles, improve problem-solving and decision-making skills and address the challenges of living with diabetes. Workshop topics include improving food choices, increasing physical activity and practicing coping skills to maintain nutrition and a healthy weight.
Individuals with diabetes or caregivers of persons with diabetes can register for the DSMP workshop online at https://forms.gle/khriEvVkb9AmD5qN7 or by calling T’Kia Pearson, the program manager of health promotion, at 240)-777-1244.
