YMCA offers diabetes prevention series

The Hastings Area YMCA is helping  people with a higher risk for the disease to prevent diabetes.

Two new groups will be available this fall. The first will meet from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mondays, beginning Sept. 30, at Tilden Community Center, 310 River St.

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.
