YMCA offers diabetes prevention series
The Hastings Area YMCA is helping people with a higher risk for the disease to prevent diabetes.
The second group will meet from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Mondays, beginning Oct. 14, at Regina Medical Center. People who have two or more of the following risk factors are at the highest risk for diabetes: those who have high cholesterol, blood pressure higher than 140/90, a family history of diabetes, are 45 years of age or older, or are physically active less than two times per week. The meetings are 24 small group sessions.
A grant from the United Way will provide reduced fees of $49. Medicare recipients may be eligible for no fee. Pre registration is required. For more information, call 612-465-0545 or 612-465-0489.
