Brenda Shaffer had diabetes for 26 years before she took advantage of an education program here that ended up making her illness much easier to manage. Her advice now to other patients?
"I just think that I wish every person who has diabetes would have a chance to go through some education programs that they would know it's not a death sentence to have diabetes," says Shaffer.
Like Brenda, you can learn more about managing diabetes through the Covenant Center for Outpatient Diabetes Education. That number is 725-5460 .
Meanwhile, a golf tournament this weekend at the Meadowbrook course is raising funds for that education program. That phone number is the same one you can call for information and reservations.
