Learn about diabetes

Are you at risk for diabetes? There are several factors that may increase your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, including: inactive lifestyle, over 45 years of age, low HDL, obesity, giving birth to a baby weighing over nine pounds, and a family history of Type 2 diabetes.

The community is encouraged to attend the Healthy Way Evening at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29, at the Augusta First United Methodist Church to find out about diabetes, its prevention and management. The program will be presented by Judy Hawkins, diabetes educator with Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital.

Questions will be welcome. Healthy snacks will be provided.
