MU Extension to Hosting Free Diabetes Self-
management Course in Joplin Starting Feb. 14

JOPLIN, Mo. - University of Missouri Extension, in partnership with Freeman Health Systems, is offering a free class for individuals with diabetes that are ready to make healthy changes.

The six-week class will help participants learn ways to self-manage their diabetes and take back control over their health.

Participants will enjoy a safe, social environment where they can connect with others going through similar life situations.

"If you take care of a loved one with diabetes, this free class will be beneficial to you too," said Lindsey Stevenson, nutrition, and health specialist with MU Extension and course instructor.

Examples of topics to be covered include menu planning, dealing with stress, and working with your health care professional and healthcare organization.

Classes are from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., starting Wednesday, Feb. 14, at the Freeman Business Center conference room, 3220 McClelland Blvd, Joplin.
