The Trinity Health’s Center for Diabetes Education will present an educational program, “Realistic Resolutions,” Tuesday, January 7, at 5:30 p.m. in the Trinity Health Community Conference Room at Town & Country Center, 1015 South Broadway.
Trinity Health Outpatient Dietitian Kayla Cole, RDN, LRD, will discuss the elements of an effective New Year’s resolution – one that helps us achieve our goals instead of ending in frustration and disappointment.
“It’s important to challenge ourselves, but setting our sights too high will ultimately lead to failure,” Cole said. “Resolutions should be realistic and specific. And they don’t all have to be punitive. A resolution to bring more enjoyment to life can be as beneficial as one that resolves to drop 30 pounds.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says one of the best things one can do in the new year is to make an appointment for a blood sugar screening to determine if you’re among the more than 84 million American adults who have prediabetes and don’t know it.
The free program is part of the center’s ongoing educational series, Keys to Diabetes Success. The focus of sessions for 2020 is “Back to Basics” diabetes care. Reservations aren’t required but recommended by calling the Center for Diabetes Education at 857-5268.
