Older residents can choose from a wide variety of programs this month at the Sunnyslope Senior Center, including a six-week Diabetes Empowerment Education Program course.

Presented by the Area Agency on Aging, the Diabetes Empowerment Education Program is designed to help people with pre-diabetes and diabetes, as well as their relatives and caregivers, gain a better understanding of diabetes self-care. Classes begin May 3 and run through June 7. Call the Senior Center to register. Visit www.aaaphx.org to learn more about Area Agency.
