"I learned that I am not alone"

Clarice Lumpkins, diabetes workshop participant
"This workshop helped me understand why I was tired all the time," says Clarice Lumpkins.
 
"I have changed how often I eat and improved my sleep habits, and I feel more energized. I have met others  who share my concerns and now know that I am not alone. Thank you for this opportunity!

 

Better Choices, Better Health® – Diabetes

OASIS is offering a program for people who have type 2 diabetes to improve their lives. Developed and tested at Stanford University, a Better Choices, Better Health – Diabetes workshop can help you:

  • Understand how to eat with diabetes while making it enjoyable
  • Monitor and manage your blood sugar
  • Start or maintain an exercise program
  • Communicate better with family, friends, and your medical team
  • Design your own self-management program so that you can do the activities you enjoy
  • Get support of others who know what you are going through

This evidence-based workshop is free to any adult with type 2 diabetes. It is offered as part of a research study conducted by Stanford University and funded by the National Council on Aging. Not all participants in the workshop will qualify for the study, but may take the workshop anyway. To find out if you qualify for the study and what is involved, simply come to the first session and fill out the paperwork. Qualified, friendly staff will be on hand to answer your questions.

How you can participate

  • Attend an orientation and a free six-week workshop to learn how to better manage your health
  • Participants meet in small groups to share experiences and learn new strategies together.
  • Call toll-free for more information or to register for a workshop:
