YMCA and Lions Working Together on Diabetes Prevention

The local YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program was a topic of discussion at the R.F. Wilkinson YMCA on August 14. Lions District 24D donated $5000 to this program which provides a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) curriculum to local residents. The program focuses on Prediabetes education to individuals identified via risk assessment and diagnostic testing. Attendees from left to right were Lions Mike Jaskowiak and Don Butts, Amanda Engelmeyer (YMCA Program coordinator) and Lion Margene Hartsough. Not shown is Michael Bennett of the YMCA.
