This coronavirus pandemic is taking a toll on diabetics and pre-diabetics alike.

“Right now is the time when their blood sugars are a little harder to control, maybe because of the stress of everything going on -- in the change in their routine and habits, and so it’s easy to just forget about managing our blood sugars,” said c Priscilla Benavidez.

That’s why the health education center is offering its Managing Diabetes classes free of charge to anyone who wants to take them.

Typically, they are prescribed by a doctor and the classes are held in person, but right now the classes are being held via Zoom, again, for free.

To enroll just call 1-866-524-1408. You don’t even have to have internet access: The classes can be done, one-on-one, over the phone.
