MTSU offers Diabetes Workshops in Smyrna

Starting this Friday afternoon, MTSU is sponsoring a series of workshops at the Smyrna Library from 1:30 to 4:00 o'clock every Friday through May 10th.

These six “Yes I Can” workshops are absolutely free, and the Library is located at 400 Enon Springs Road in Smyrna.

“Yes I Can” is designed for diabetics and people with pre-diabetes symptoms in Rutherford County and the surrounding Middle Tennessee areas. Points of emphasis include healthy eating, exercise, preventing complications, medications, communication skills and more.

The Center for Health and Human Services at MTSU is supervising the workshops, which are funded through a grant from the Tennessee Department of Health.

The sessions are limited to 20 people each. Participants must be 18 years of age or over. A doctor’s referral is not required to attend, though pre-registration is required for both participants and caregivers or support persons.

An additional workshop series will be scheduled later this spring and will be announced in the near future. For more information or to register, contact Cindy Chafin at cynthia.chafin@mtsu.edu or 615-898-5493 or 615-847-3081.
