Cox Medical Center Branson will host two comprehensive diabetes workshops starting this week. The 10-hour courses cover everything from diagnosis to meal planning, according Valerie Newcome, MS, RD/LD, CDE, diabetes education coordinator and outpatient dietitian.
The class is recognized by the American Diabetes Association as meeting national standards for diabetes self-management education. Newcome and Joan Heil, a registered nurse and certified diabetes coordinator, teach the course.
A physician’s referral is required so anyone interested in attending should talk to their doctor.
The next morning sessions will be held from 9 a.m.-noon November 4, 11 and 18. The next afternoon sessions will be held from 1–4 p.m. November 6, 13 and 20.
