Special to The PREVIEW

People diagnosed with prediabetes are at a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  Effectively managing prediabetes can help prevent diabetes.

Anyone identified as having prediabetes is invited to attend a free class by Sheena Carswell, CNS, BC-ADM, and Marge Morris, RD, CDE. Attendees will learn how to manage prediabetes and help prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

The class will be held Thursday, Aug. 7, from 9 to 11 a.m. in suite 140 of the medical office building at Mercy Regional Medical Center.
