    - What is Healthy Living with Diabetes?
    This researched and proven workshop is designed to help adults with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes learn skills and increase their confidence in managing their diabetes. The workshop meets for 2½ hours once a week for six weeks.
    Healthy Living with Diabetes does not replace existing treatments, but rather complements the treatments a participant receives.
    Who should take the workshop?
    • Adults with type 2 diabetes, • Adults with pre-diabetes, or • Adults living with someone who has diabetes
    What’s in it for me? People who have taken the workshop show:
    • Better health, health behavior and a sense of confidence in managing their diabetes • Improvements in blood sugar levels • Decrease in health distress and hypo- and hyperglycemia • Fewer doctor and emergency room visits and fewer hospitalizations
    Did you know?
    • One of every 12 Americans is affected by diabetes.
    • In Wisconsin, there are 475,000 adults with diabetes and 1.45 million adults with pre-diabetes
    • Diabetes is leading cause of blindness, heart disease and stroke, and amputation of lower extremities.

  • | NATL - National Holidays
    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world
