Living with diabetes in the real world, free session Saturday

Free seminar on living with diabetes

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If diabetes is an issue in your family, you have a great opportunity this Saturday to learn more about living with diabetes in the real world.

The free session is called Healthy Living in the Real World and it's the 9th annual event sponsored by the American Diabetes Association.

Dr. Jesus Hidalgo from the Covenant Center for Wound Care is leading the event Saturday morning from 8:45 a.m. to noon. There will also be pharmacists, dietitians, and other specialists there to answer your questions.

The goal is to help you feel good about living with this disease, or living with someone you love who has diabetes. There will be nutrition tips, recipes and even free snacks.

But you need to register by Wednesday, April 25, so organizers can plan on the right number of materials and snacks for those attending.
