Diabetes strikes nearly 30 million Americans. That’s 1 in 10 SCV residents. To help us learn more about diabetes and adopting healthy habits, the American Diabetes Association presents an informative diabetes discussion about the importance of knowing the risk and available Type 2 diabetes prevention programs. It will be held on Tuesday, August 1 from 4-5:30 p.m. at Oakmont of Santa Clarita, 28650 Newhall Ranch Road, Santa Clarita. The Association will provide free health screenings, cooking demonstrations, exercise demonstrations, diabetes workshops, giveaways, and more. The discussion will be given by the Prevent T2 program, a 12-month lifestyle change program for helping people with the little things that reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. To attend, RSVP by July 28, 2017. You can register at Oakmont of Santa Clarita; 661-295-2025. The event is free.
