Diabetes Awareness Classes Held Each Thursday in February

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A diabetes awareness class was held at 1 p.m. Thursday as part of a February series of educational classes at Catholic Charities of Corpus Christi's Healthy Living & Advocacy Center.

Participants learn the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, the effects of high blood pressure and cholesterol, and what cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels mean.

The classes, offered by Noe Rodriguez of the Corpus Christi Health Administration, are held every Thursday this month at the Center, located at 1125 S. Port Avenue.

Also part of their effort to educate people about diabetes is the Healthy Kitchens course by Margie Nygard of the Food Bank of Corpus Christi, which is held on each Tuesday of February. There, participants can learn about planning, budgeting and cooking healthy meals.

The classes are free and open to the public. If you are interested in registering for these classes, call Aaron Villalobos at 361-442-2224.
