TOMS RIVER – If you live with diabetes, you can minimize its impact, control A1C levels and monitor blood sugar and stress levels. “Seniors: Take Control of Your Life” diabetes workshops will take place at four Ocean County Library branches, beginning June 15.

Hackensack Meridian Health and Meals on Wheels of Ocean County sponsor the free, live diabetes self-management programs in partnership with OCL. The series was developed by Stanford University for people age 60 and older.
