Closing The Diabetes Risk Gap


November is diabetes awareness month, and if you’re one of the millions of women who have recently been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, or told you are at risk, you’re physician has more than likely shared with you the single biggest improvement you can make in improving your health – change your eating habits and start exercising.

The good news is, significant improvements can be made to your health if you are willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes and they can be made relatively quickly.

Our sister site, Green Mountain at Fox Run, is conducting their 6th Annual Living – A Women’s LIfestyle Approach for Mastering Type 2 Diabetes and Pre-diabetes program, November 6th – 12th. This is a week long joint offering from the staffs of Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Medical School and Green Mountain at Fox Run .

This unique program teaches real life strategies that help women take charge of their diabetes and their health.  By the time they leave the program they will have their eating, fitness and behavioral plan in place, ready to make a successful transition home with the confidence of knowing what to do and how to do it. Special featured speaker: Edward Horton, MD, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Medical Director, Joslin Diabetes Center and Past President, American Diabetes Association.
