Huguley Memorial Medical Center’s Ladies First and the City of Burleson’s Be Healthy Initiative are excited to announce a collaborative event titled “Living Well with Diabetes.” The event will be held on Thursday, November 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the Huguley Fitness Center amphitheater. “Living Well with Diabetes” will provide men and women tips on how to secure a lifelong road of wellness with diabetes, as well as preventing diabetes.
November is diabetes awareness month. Diabetes is a chronic condition associated with high levels of glucose in the blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to blindness, kidney disease, strokes and coronary heart disease. Diabetes is the third leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease and cancer.
Join two experts, Family Medicine Physician Elizabeth Vu D.O. and Certified Diabetes Educator Janet Yates, RD, LD, who will discuss the latest findings in diabetes prevention and awareness.
Keeping citizens and their families educated on safety, wellness and health is what Be Healthy Burleson and Ladies First strive for. The programs encourage citizens to stay informed and involved to help make a difference in their community. Refreshments, fun door prizes and plenty of informational material will be offered. In addition, those who attend “Living Well with Diabetes” will receive a free book, CREATION Health-Your Path to a Healthy 100.
