Free Diabetes Prevention Class to be Held in Newport

The Northern Kentucky Health Department will be offering an introductory class on Type 2 diabetes prevention. The free two-hour class is planned for 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27, at the Campbell County Health Center on Monmouth Street in Newport.

This class will provide helpful information about ways to lower your risk for Type 2 diabetes, such as portion sizes, and how to eat healthy but still enjoy your favorite foods. A light dinner will be provided.

One in three adults in the U.S. has pre-diabetes, but only 11 percent know they have it. Studies show that programs like these can reduce the number of cases of Type 2 diabetes by 58 percent in adults and by 70 percent in adults over age 60.

To register or for more information about the Health Department’s diabetes control program, please call Joan Geohegan at 859-363-2115 or Julie Shapero at 859-363-2116.
