Pittsfield: BMC offers free pre-diabetes education sessions
Berkshire Medical Center’s Diabetes Education Program is offering free educational sessions on pre-diabetes from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays, Aug. 25 and Sept. 8, in Private Dining Room C at BMC, located near the BMC Café.
Attendees should plan on attending both dates. The programs will be presented by Julie Shepard, registered dietitian at BMC.
The sessions are designed for those whose physician have told them their blood sugar levels are elevated but not high enough to be considered diabetes, or for those who have been told they are at risk for diabetes.
Those interested in participating are also asked to take a brief survey that can help them determine whether they are at risk for pre-diabetes or diabetes. The survey can be printed out by visiting the BHS website, www.berkshirehealthsystems.org.
Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, call (413) 395-7942 or register online at www.berkshirehealthsystems.org.
