CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc. recently graduated 10 participants at the Clearfield Center for Active Living that attended an evidence-based Diabetic Self-Management Program developed by Stanford University.
Under the direction of Julie Fenton and Rebecca Shaffer, the class attended six, 2.5-hour sessions on healthy eating, physical activity, medication, stress management, communication, problem solving, action planning, decision-making and working with their healthcare professionals.
The participants engaged in interactive sessions that helped in the process of learning how to build confidence in their abilities to manage health and maintain full and active, fulfilling lives.
