A two-day class on living well with diabetes is presented from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 18 and 19 in the Pershing and Ellinor meeting rooms at Mason General Hospital.

The goal of the class is to help people understand diabetes, keep it under control to prevent complications, and promote health and longevity.

The class covers such diabetes topics as diagnosis, managing medications, proper meal planning, exercise, prevention and treatment of complications, stress management, living well, and engaging support people and a health care team. The class is taught by Mason General Hospital employees.

Family members and loved ones are also invited to attend the class to gain knowledge and offer their support. Because of limited space, registration is required by calling Sue Barwick — registered nurse and certified diabetes educator - at 426-1611, ext. 28941; from Allyn, call 275-8614, ext. 28941. Diabetes education is a covered service under most insurance plans, the organizers state.
