Oasis is offering a program for people who have type 2 diabetes to improve their lives. Developed and tested at Stanford University, a Better Choices, Better Health – Diabetes workshop can help you:

  • Understand how to eat with diabetes while making it enjoyable

  • Monitor and manage your blood sugar

  • Start or maintain an exercise program

  • Communicate better with family, friends, and your medical team

  • Design your own self-management program so that you can do the activities you enjoy

  • Get support of others who know what you are going through

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.
