CLEARFIELD – Residents from the Leonard Court Apartments in Clearfield and the community participated in the CCAAA Diabetes Self-Management classes.

They completed six, 2.5-hour weekly sessions discussing healthy eating, physical activity, medication, stress management, communication, problem solving, decision making and working with their health care professionals.

Participants engaged in interactive sessions that helped them to build confidence in their abilities to manage their health and maintain active fulfilling lives.

A graduation celebration was held on Thursday, March 22.  The participants received a certificate and enjoyed some healthy snacks.

The class members agreed that this course was “very helpful, helped with meal planning and they would recommend that anyone with diabetes take the class.”

Programs and services of the agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc., Mature Resources Foundation, and local and consumer contributions.
