The Northern Kentucky Health Department, in collaboration with the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati, will be offering an introductory class to preventing Type 2 diabetes. The two-hour class is planned for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, January 13, at RC Durr Branch YMCA, 5874 Veteran’s Way, Burlington, Ky. Light refreshments will be provided.
This class will provide helpful information about ways to lower your risk for Type 2 diabetes. In addition there will be an opportunity to learn about the YMCA’s year long community-based diabetes prevention program.
One in three adults in the U.S. has pre-diabetes, but only 11 percent know they have it. Studies show that programs like these can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent in adults and by 70 percent in adults over age 60.
Registration not required but greatly appreciated. For more information or to register, please contact Kiana Trabue at 513.362.2015 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
