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 six-week 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 – 11:30 a.m. on Fridays, beginning Nov. 2 through Dec. 14, at the OHAI Southeast Center of Healthy Aging office located in the Durant Medical Complex at 1400 Bryan Drive, Suite 102, in Durant.  Classes are offered at no charge.  Funding is provided by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.

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 Cindy Ruhl, Educaton Specialist with OHAI’s Southeast Center of Healthy Aging at (580) 745-9477 Ext. 103 or email Cynthia-Ruhl@ouhsc.edu.
