Bacon County Hospital will introduce its Health Education Program with an installment of diabetes management classes beginning March 5th.

Do you have diabetes or pre-diabetes? Do you have a family member with diabetes or pre-diabetes? Are you interested in learning more about diabetes?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, a free diabetes program will be held at Bacon County Hospital. The Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP) is a free, interactive, hands-on program that encourages lifestyle changes while learning about your diabetes and the way it affects your quality of life. Please mark your calendars so you are able to attend all six sessions. We regret that there can be no new attendees after Workshop #2.
