Like many Pacific Islands, Hawaii is particularly hard hit by diabetes . A new program will arrive on Molokai to try and help residents to manage the effects of the condition. Starting on May 20th, Ke Ola Pono will offer a ‘Living Well with Diabetes’ program.
The program is aimed at all adults with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes or a greater risk of developing diabetes . Those people that participate in and complete the workshops should feel better, take better charge of their health, and spend less time with their healthcare professionals .
Topics within the course will include goal setting, problem solving, planning for ill days, how to use medication, how to eat healthily, and how to communicate with friends, family and healthcare teams.
