Living well with diabetes means managing both the emotional aspects of the condition and understanding the important role medications play in keeping you healthy. Trying to achieve this balance greatly affects the lives of diabetics, and can have a number of implications.
Crouse Hospital healthcare experts will address these issues during “Living Well With Diabetes…Managing Stress & Your Medications” – a free seminar to be held Thursday, Nov. 5, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in Crouse Hospital’s Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Featured speakers, Sheila Maestri, RN, MS, and LMHC, and Nabila Ahmed-Sarwar, PharmD, BCPS, CDE, will discuss a number of important concerns, including coping with the emotional impact of diabetes, understanding medications, and managing stress and depression. Following the seminar, a panel discussion presented by Maestri and Ahmed-Sarwar, joined by endocrinologist David DiCesar, MD, and diabetic educator Susan Rioux, MS, RN, CNS, CDE, will further elaborate on how to live healthy and active lives with this condition.
Part of a continuous effort to educate the community, the seminar is open to the public. Crouse encourages diabetics and their family members to attend. To register call 474-2464.
