Diabetes Management Class
Published on Monday, April 22, 2019
To support members with diabetes, Blue Cross partnered with Jewel Osco® through our Living 365TM program to offer live diabetes education classes from April through June 2019.
The classes are available to members at no cost and include:
• A "Healthy Eating" grocery store tour led by a registered dietician. During the tour, members will learn about counting carbohydrates, types of fat, reading food labels, better food choices, new ways to prepare a cultural diet and much more.
• A discussion on diabetes led by a registered pharmacist including Rx/OTC medicines, diabetes clinical guideline products, monitoring blood glucose/weight and incorporating physical activity into their lifestyle.
• An opportunity to engage with a dietician and pharmacist during the question and answer session.
• Free educational materials – including a diabetes booklet, tote bag and water bottle!
Each eligible member can bring one guest. Please share the attached letter/flier with your Chicago area members and encourage them to register for one of the classes today. Class dates, times and locations are included in the flier. Thanks!
