Diabetes is on the rise, but can be a very manageable illness. If you or someone you care for has diabetes or is pre-diabetic, why not learn how to more effectively “take charge” and live an active and fulfilling life?

I on Diabetes is a four-part series taught by University of Illinois Extension Educator Mary Liz Wright, and is designed to help you manage diabetes.  You will learn the fundamentals of diabetes, how nutrients impact diabetes, the importance of meal planning and physical activity, how to set health goals, plus receive and sample tasty recipes.  

Classes will be held in the library (Room SU 207) of Lincoln Trail College at 11220 State Highway 1, Robinson. Dates are November 10, 17, and 24 from 5-8 PM and December 1 from 5-7 PM. Due to Lincoln Trail College being closed on December 1, the final session will be conducted online. It is requested participants attend all sessions.

The cost for this series is $10 person or $15 per couple. Registration is required by calling the Lincoln Trail Library at 618-544-8654, extension 1427 or online at
