Join us for an eight session parent education program presented by the Family Health and Wellness Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension.

Each session is designed with hands-on activities so that participants have the opportunity to practice these skills. All sessions will be held in Yaphank at the 4-H Youth Development and Diabetes Education Center and will run Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30p.m.
