Diabetes Management and the VeggieRx Program
Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects many of our community members. Many people can learn ways to feel at their best while improving their diabetes symptoms. This might include managing what you eat, exercising, and coming in for regular health care appointments. Our staff can help answer your questions about living with diabetes.
If you have diabetes and want to eat healthier, we welcome you to join our VeggieRx Program, which is a partnership with Windy City Harvest.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings are being held over the phone.
