FLORENCE – Pinal County’s Public Health program aims to reduce health complications of patients with diabetes by presenting brief educational sessions for the public.  The next session will be Tuesday, April 23 from noon to 2 PM at the Mammoth Public Library.

  “These sessions are designed to help those living with diabetes or those who are newly diagnosed as well as their family members and loved ones,” said Rosanna Ringer, a registered dietitian who helps supervise Pinal County’s nutrition, education and outreach programs.  “We will have useful information for everyone who wants to know more about living with diabetes.”

  The next session will feature a talk by Sheri Steincamp, MS, RD who will give a general “Diabetes 101” talk covering glucose testing, self management, healthy eating and the role of physical activity.  A question and answer session will follow Ms. Steincamp’s presentation.

  “There is a wealth of information out there on living with diabetes but we find that people enjoy the one-on-one and small group interaction that happens in our diabetes education program,” Ringer added.  “Our objective is encourage dietary and lifestyle decisions that enable diabetics to live long, enjoyable lives, free from complications.”

  Diabetes education classes are free for the public to attend.  Pinal County Public Health asks that you call in advance to reserve a seat so that there are enough chairs set up for everyone.  Simply call 1-800-231-8499, extension 7315 or 520-866-7315.
