Diabetic Retinopathy Workshops
Diabetes and Diabetic Retinopathy affect many areas of life. Our specially designed workshops provide an opportunity to share with others who are experiencing similar circumstances. In a safe environment we address both the emotional and practical issues of living with this disease. Some of the topics we address throughout the year include:
- balancing diet, exercise and medications,
- confronting the fear of losing more vision,
- resisting food temptations and saying “no thanks” gracefully, and
- managing the stress of multiple health issues.
Our Diabetic Retinopathy workshops meet periodically throughout the year. To learn how you can participate, contact Lauri Dishman at 312-236-8569.
