Quincy Medical Group offers an on-site diabetes prevention class to the public aimed to educate those with a pre-diabetes diagnosis, those with a family history of diabetes, and those who are interested in better managing their health. Many health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be easier to manage with healthy food choices, keeping weight in a healthy range, and getting regular exercise. This class provides participants with the knowledge and tools needed to improve their quality of life.
Loretta Musholt, RN, BSN, CDE and course coordinator says, “We’ve seen great successes through this program. We’ve had individuals learn to better manage their weight, make healthier food choices, and lead overall healthier lifestyles. It’s the first step of a life-long journey that we want to help individuals take.”
The next 8-week program begins September 9, 2014. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 5:00-6:00 pm in the Nutrition Services department at QMG. Class topics include four keys to healthy eating out, how to reduce calories, how to talk back to negative thoughts, and ways to stay motivated. The class fee is $100 and space is limited.
