Weis Markets Offers Free Diabetes-Focused Virtual Programming

Weis American Diabetes Month

Weis Markets, a mid-Atlantic food retailer, will host a range of free virtual diabetes-focused programming for American Diabetes Month in November to help customers impacted by diabetes and to raise community awareness. All sessions are designed to provide guidance for individuals with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, those at risk for Type 2 diabetes or those who want to learn key prevention measures.

Specific class topics include:

  • Diabetes Q&A and Cooking Demo with Weis Pharmacist and Dietitian;
  • Navigating the Holidays with Diabetes;
  • Simple Swaps for Better Blood Sugar Control; and
  • Virtual Diabetes Grocery Store Tour.

“We know that many Weis customers and associates are managing or living with someone who is managing pre-diabetes or diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes each year,” said Beth Stark, Weis Markets manager of nutrition and lifestyle initiatives. “This American Diabetes Month, we’re excited to work with Weis pharmacists to provide education opportunities for the public that we hope will inspire participants to make lifestyle changes to better manage or prevent diabetes. Virtual programming is especially important for the members of our community who are living with this pre-existing condition through the COVID-19 pandemic and cold and flu season.

Weis Markets is partnering with OneTouch to bring these programs to its associates and community members, along with an exclusive offer to all registered participants. All virtual programs are free to Weis Markets Preferred Shoppers Club Card holders. To find the full lineup of free diabetes education events, click here.

  • Type 2 Diabetes;
  • High Blood Pressure/Cholesterol;
  • Celiac Disease; and
  • Weight Control.

Additionally, the Weis Dietitian team offers a monthly schedule of interactive cooking classes geared toward preschool or elementary-aged children.
