"Preventing Diabetes in Today's Supersized World" Topic of Upcoming Lunch and Learn For Your Health Lecture

diabetes educator, Sue UllrichJanuary 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.
