January 8, 2018 – Living life on the go often makes eating healthy
and finding time to exercise a challenge. In the United States, more than
30 million people have diabetes, and another 84 million have pre-diabetes,
a condition where their blood sugars are higher than normal but not high
enough to be diagnosed with diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, many people with pre-diabetes could develop type
2 diabetes within five years, unless they make necessary lifestyle changes.
To help jump start a healthier new year, join us on Wednesday, Jan. 31,
as Sue Ullrich, R.N., M.A.Ed., CDE, Diabetes Program Coordinator at Southeast
Georgia Health System, presents “Preventing Diabetes in Today’s
Supersized World.” The Lunch and Learn For Your Health lecture will
be held at the Golden Isles YMCA from 12 to 1 p.m., and lunch will be
provided by the Olive Garden at no charge to attendees.
The presentation will offer important information on risk factors for pre-diabetes,
reducing risk for type 2 diabetes, tips for healthy lifestyle changes and more.
The Lunch and Learn For Your Health series takes place at the Golden Isles
YMCA located at 144 Scranton Connector, Brunswick. Seating is limited
and pre-registration is required by calling the YMCA at 912-265-4100.
