Diabetes workshop in Smithers

April 18, 7 p.m., Healthy Living Centre, 1070 Main St., the Canadian Diabetes Assoc. hosts an information session featuring Mrs. Pudding.

Wednesday, April 18, from 7 p.m. − 8:30 p.m.  at  the Healthy Living Centre, 1070 Main St.,  Smithers the Canadian Diabetes Association hosts a free information session featuring Mrs. Pudding.   Lunch will be included.

The highlight of the workshop includes Sue Schaeffer, Diabetes Educator, as Mrs. Pudding.

Unlike other events where we provide basic information on diabetes management, this event has an entertaining approach, Boyanne Young, Northern BC Yukon Region Branch Co-ordinator explained.

“With laughter and learning Mrs. Pudding takes you on a journey of self-discovery that will help you on yours,” she added.

Sweet Success with Diabetes features Mrs. Pudding, a fun loving, feisty grandma who knows a thing or two about living well with diabetes.

She loves to eat, hates to exercise and is shocked to hear she has diabetes.

But after considerable ‘denialbetes’, Mrs. Pudding develops her own diabetes management program that is fun, easy to understand and practical.   Join her as she shares her story of living positively with the challenge of diabetes.

For more information contact Shelley Irvine, Diabetes Nurse Educator, 250-847-6014
