In June, we embarked on our second year of partnership with the First Coast YMCA to
provide the community with free diabetes prevention and hypertension management workshops.
The classes are open to the public and facilitated by a Y life coach
and supervised by BEAM’s Registered Dietitian Rachel McCandless.
The class schedules are as follows:
- Diabetes Prevention Program – every Monday from 10:30am to 11:30am at the Mayport food pantry (1447 Mayport Road, Atlantic Beach, FL 32233).
- Hypertension Management Program – every Monday from 9am to 10am and 1pm to 2pm at the Mayport food pantry (1447 Mayport Road, Atlantic Beach, FL 32233).
Lunch is provided to attendees, and participants are able to “shop” one on one with BEAM’s Registered Dietitian following class. If you or someone you know is interested in joining us, please reach out to Rachel at 904-624-9566 or Rachel@jaxbeam.org.
