What it is: The Yes I Can! Diabetes Self-Management Workshop Series is a free six-session workshop
that is conducted in two and a half hour sessions in community settings. The program
was developed and tested by Stanford University to help people learn the techniques
and strategies they need for day-to-day management of their disease. The goal of self-management
is to improve quality of life by giving patients the skills to manage their lives
in the face of chronic illness. This program does not conflict with existing treatment
or other education programs.
Who should participate: Yes I Can! is designed to benefit adults diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes
symptoms. Participants are encouraged to attend the series with a loved one or support
What is taught: Workshop topics include healthy eating, sharing/problem solving, action planning, exercise, preventing hypoglycemia, monitoring glucose, stress/depression, medications, preventing complications, communication skills, and sick days.
