Diabetes Empowerment Education Program coming to Durant

Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative (OHAI) Southeast Center of Healthy Aging will be providing the Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP) for anyone affected by diabetes, pre-diabetes, and caregivers of those affected by diabetes.

DEEP is a diabetes self-management education program that will help you understand how diabetes affects your body and how to make sense of your blood sugar numbers. In this class you will have the opportunity to meet other people who have diabetes and have fun learning in a small group through games, activities and support conversations.

DEEP will be held from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. on Fridays for six weeks, beginning Friday, Feb. 8 through Friday, Mar. 15 inside the Southeast Center of Healthy Aging office, located at the Durant Medical Complex 1400 Bryan Drive, Suite 102 in Durant.  Classes are offered at no charge.  Funding for this OHAI DEEP class is provided by a grant from the TSET Healthy Living Program.

Instructors are provided by OHAI, a program of the Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

OHAI serves all individuals who are eligible for its programs without regard to race, national origin, ancestry, color, religion, sex, age or disability.

To receive additional information or for a reservation in the class, please call Kathy Gooding, Education Director with OHAI’s Southeast Center of Healthy Aging at (580) 745 – 9477 Ext. 101.
