2020 Adult PM Workshops
The Diabetes Awareness workshop will include two brief videos, starring members of People First NH, that discuss the importance of diabetes prevention and how to care for yourself after a diagnosis of diabetes. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion. The panel will include actors from the videos, many of whom experience diabetes. There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and learn where to find resources in their communities that can help them adopt a healthy lifestyle.
