Diabetes Support Group Presentation "Managing Holiday Stress" 11/03/2011 St. Mary Mercy Hospital will host a presentation called “Managing Holiday Stress” on Wednesday, November 9, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the hospital’s Auditorium. The speaker is Theresa Castagna, RN, Behavioral Medicine, St. Mary Mercy Hospital.
The American Diabetes Association states that the holidays can be a very busy and stressful time of year. When stress builds up, it causes the release of “fight or flight” hormones. These hormones then cause an increase in blood glucose. Theresa will discuss ways to decrease holiday stress.
This is a Diabetes Support Group presentation and is open to anyone with diabetes and their support family. There is no charge, and pre-registration is not required.
