This evidence-based workshop is free to any adult with type 2 diabetes. It is offered as part of a research study conducted by Stanford University and funded by the National Council on Aging. Not all participants in the workshop will qualify for the study, but may take the workshop anyway. To find out if you qualify for the study and what is involved, simply come to the first session and fill out the paperwork. Qualified, friendly staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
