Class designed for diabetics

JASPER  Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center wants to support people in the transition of their lifestyle with the diagnosis of diabetes. The hospital sponsors a continuing education group for persons with  diabetes, pre-diabetes, or anyone who is interested in learning about the disease.

The topic for the July class is “Managing Diabetes in the Heat.” The support group is held the third Monday of each month and provides knowledge to help people feel more secure, manage problems and avoid hospitalization for diabetes-related issues.

The next meeting will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 20, in Memorial Hospital’s Mary Potter Meeting Room, 800 W. Ninth St.
