Lodi Health will begin a new, free class on Monday called “Living with Diabetes.”

The class is taught by registered nurse Donna Schulz, who has type 1 diabetes and has been using insulin for 25 years.

“Living with diabetes has not hindered my endeavors in life, and as a cancer survivor that included having a stem cell transplant,” she said in a press release. She says diabetes can be managed to have a full, productive life. Schulz’s career as a nurse and health educator has spanned 32 years.

The four-week course will help the participant identify diabetes, as well as cover topics such as controlling the disease through nutrition, blood glucose testing, exercise, personal care, complications, insulin and oral medications.

Anyone with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, newly diagnosed patients or anyone who needs a refresher is encouraged to attend.

The course will be offered from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday; Sept. 16, 23 and 30; Oct. 7, 14, 21 and 28; and Nov. 4, 11, 18 and 25 at the Lodi Health West Campus, 800 S. Lower Sacramento Road.
