Diabetes Wellness and Prevention New Cohort Starts January 29th and 30th

Categories: Blog

We are dedicated to promoting health equity and reducing the disparity in diabetes outcomes that disproportionately affect the Black community in Buncombe County.

If you have type 2 diabetes or are at risk the YWCA offers a life-changing journey!

What are the benefits?

  • Weekly educational support groups
  • Membership to the YWCA Fitness and Aquatic Center
  • Consultations with a pharmacist

We will explore important topics such as:

  • Monitoring blood glucose (sugar)
  • Engaging in physical activity
  • Making healthy food choices, planning meals and controlling portion size
  • Knowing your medications
  • Understanding complications associated with diabetes
  • Managing stress and social situations
  • Setting goals and problem solving

All of this is offered to you for an affordable, sliding scale, monthly fee!
