Self-management sessions in March and April

The Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Library, in Partnership with the Westchester Independent Living Center Health and Wellness Series, presents a Diabetes Self Management Program. This six-week workshop series is for adults age 18 and older who have been diagnosed with diabetes or caregivers for those with diabetes.

This workshop is geared for Type 2 diabetes, but persons diagnosed with Type 1 are welcome. Topics to be covered, but not limited to, include: making an action plan, nutrition and healthy eating, stress management, monitoring blood sugar, and working with a health care professional.

This six-week program will take place Tuesday mornings, March 3, 10, 24 and 31 (no class March 17) and April 7 and 14, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the main reading room of the Butterfield Library. Registration is required; this is not a drop-in program. Information presented each week will build on the previous week’s class.

To register, access the Butterfield Library’s online calendar at and register on the calendar on the homepage, or call 845-265-3040 and ask to speak with Luanne Morse.
