Putnam Hospital Center hosts diabetes lunch and learn

Posted: 11/1/2019

In observance of National Diabetes Awareness Month, clinicians at Putnam Hospital Center will lead a community discussion on diabetes focusing on how to manage the disease, reduce your risk factors and lead a healthy lifestyle during a lunch-and-learn event.

The luncheon is from noon to 2 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 20, in the hospital’s Michael T. Weber Conference Rooms, 670 Stoneleigh Ave. Seating is limited to 45 people.

Enjoy a complimentary, diabetic-friendly lunch while hearing from Family Nurse Practitioner Lena Petersen, Clinical Nutrition Supervisor/Diabetes Educator Indrani Dhar and Diabetes Educator Joanne Greene on what to do after being diagnosed with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, what and when to eat and other strategies to incorporate healthy habits for busy lives.

“Diabetes does not have to define you,” Dhar said. “There are many ways to enjoy a long and happy life with thoughtful management of the disease.”

Registration is required. To reserve a seat, please email Marcela Rojas at and/or call 845-230-4773 (TTY 800-421-1220).
