Diabetes affects nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. today; nearly 10 percent of the population. Having diabetes doubles the risk for heart attack and death from heart disease. The American Diabetes Association estimates that one in three adults will have diabetes by 2050 unless we take steps to prevent this disease.
Classes are free. Call Nancy Beltre at 551-257-7033 or the office manager at a nearby adult medicine location. To sign up, visit RiversideMedGroup.com.
