Belcher Road, will host a year-long diabetes prevention series sponsored by the Suncoast YMCA with additional support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance, the National Council on Aging and Baycare.

Anyone who has a family history of diabetes, a diagnosed pre-diabetic condition, or any other diabetes risk factors is eligible to attend the free program that will include how to make lifestyle changes to improve overall health and reduce the risks of developing the disease.

Titled “Big Rewards, Small Steps,” the classes begin March 25 and meet Tuesdays for 16 weeks, followed by monthly follow-ups for the balance of the year.

The Aging Well Center will hold a Wednesday, March 12, 9 a.m. seminar on diabetes prevention led by Dr. Cynthia Miller that will include information on the YMCA program. Interested individuals will have the opportunity to sign up for the YMCA program at the seminar.
