Leaders Needed to Help Diabetics Manage Their Illness
The MTSU Center for Health and Human Service will present five more leadership-training sessions for the Yes I Can! Diabetes Self-Management Program May 10, 11, 17 and 18 at Murfreesboro’s Primary Care and Hope Clinic.
The sessions are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the clinic, located at 1453A Hope Way.
Participants who complete the four-day training regimen will co-facilitate community workshops under a program developed by Stanford University. The Yes I Can! program helps people learn techniques and strategies they need for day-to-day management of diabetes.
Characteristics of a workshop leader include problem-solving abilities; a commitment to help others; a willingness to listen, learn new skills and become a healthy role model; openness to new ideas; and an ability to protect confidentiality.
The training is free, and all materials will be provided. This project is funded under an agreement with the State of Tennessee.
