Earlier this week, the Lion’s Club of Plainfield donated $5,000 to benefit the C.W. Avery Family YMCA’s new Diabetes Self-Management Program. Set to debut this spring, the program will be offered at no cost to diabetics, pre-diabetics, caregivers and friends of those who suffer from Type 2 Diabetes. Using curriculum developed at Stanford University, classes will focus on healthy eating, exercise and blood sugar monitoring, among many other self-management tools. Look out for more information in the coming weeks.
