|The traditional Southern woman's diet might be yummy, but it can often lead to medical problems. Just ask Paula Deen. Women often take care of their families first and put themselves last, but it’s important to remember that diabetes affects not just women but the entire family. To help learn how you can take great care of yourself and your family, join us on Tuesday, March 27 at 7:00 pm at Abbeville Area Medical Center for Sweet Tea and GRITS: A Look at Women and Diabetes. The program will help women with diabetes learn to enjoy living life to the fullest while still taking care of their families, and themselves.
“Many women spend so much time taking care of children, husbands and even parents that they forget to take the time to care for themselves,” explained Sherrie Dansby, RN, BSN, CDE, CPT, Diabetes Education Department Manager at Abbeville Area Medical Center. “The problem is, if women aren’t taking care of themselves by managing their diabetes, the results can be devastating for everyone. Our program will focus on how women can take charge of their diabetes while still taking great care of their families.”
Sweet Tea and GRITS will be held in the Administrative Wing Conference Room at Abbeville Area Medical Center. Attendees will enjoy complimentary coffee, fruit, and dessert and a drawing for great prizes.
