Waynesboro Senior Center Weekly Report

Our new Diabetes Support Group will meet at 11 a.m. on the second Tuesday of every month. That is on May 10th this month. This is being led by new volunteer nurse Kristi Williams, RN. Diabetes education is one of her specialties. We encourage any seniors in the community that have diabetes to try to attend this support group. You will learn ways to live well even with this disease and to manage your risk factors for complications. You will also share and learn with others living with diabetes.

Glucose Checks

Kristi will also do glucose checks in the morning before the support group meets. She will start that at 9:00a.m. This is a FREE service. Remember for the most accurate results—fast for 8 hours before the check.
