Diabetes Awareness Mondays are coming to the King Family Library, September 29- October 20. This event has been organized through UT Extension, Linda Hyder, to include a “Super Star Line Up” of professionals speaking on topics common to diabetes.
Each Monday beginning on September 29, a professional will address an important self-management skill. The topics and speakers will vary weekly. Monday, September 29, Jane Kelly, with UT Healthy Living Kitchen will present a program on Simplified Eating with Diabetes. October 6, Rhonda McCammon, Fresenius Medical Services, will discuss Preventing Kidney Disease. On October 13, Dr. Joseph Florence of the Quillen College of Medicine will teach Foot Care. The final Monday, October 20, Eric Lee of Lee’s Total Health Pharmacy will present a program on Medications for Diabetics.
The public is invited to attend these sessions at no charge. Each weekly program will be held from 5:30 – 6:30 at the King Family Public Library, 408 High Street in Sevierville.
