Diabetes Prevention Program Begins Sept. 17, 19
The National Diabetes Prevention Program provides tools, social support, education and motivation to help you change your life if you are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. This lifestyle change program has resulted significant weight loss, improved quality of life and lowered glucose levels for past participants. It runs from 6 to 7 pm Tuesdays, starting September 17, 2019, at YMCA.
This is a 26-session workshop that begins with 16 weekly sessions, and then it shifts to meeting once or twice a month for the remaining 10 sessions, for a total of a year commitment. Space is limited, and the past two sessions have filled up with a waiting list, so don’t delay in reaching out.
First Diabetes Fair and Health Expo A Success
Nearly 50 people joined the Cayuga Community Health Network for a diabetes fair.

Dr. William Shang, author of Fighting Insulin Resistance with Strength Training, kicked off the day with a discussion on muscle training and the biology of diabetes. Dan Flanick, a co-owner of Skaneateles Strength and Conditioning, lead the afternoon session on strength training for people off all abilities.
