MANISTIQUE – A diabetes self-management workshop will be offered at the Manistique Senior Center beginning on Oct. 10. The Diabetes PATH (Personal Action Toward Health) workshop is a six-week workshop designed to provide the skills and tools needed by people living with Type II diabetes to improve their health and manage their symptoms.
