Diabetes Prevention Program
Does diabetes run in your family? Are you physically active and eating healthy? You could be on the path to diabetes, but it's not too late to turn things around. The National Diabetes Prevention Program is available at Neighborhood HealthSource to guide you to a healthier lifestyle.
