Morris Hospital hosts prediabetes class

The Morris Hospital Diabetes Education Center will host a free prediabetes class from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 8, in Whitman Assembly Room 2 at Morris Hospital, 150 W. High St.

Led by a diabetes educator, the class will focus on healthy eating, physical activity and lifestyle behaviors that help prevent or delay the development of diabetes. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Statistics indicate one in every three Americans has prediabetes, a health condition where blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. The condition puts a person at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Ninety percent of people with prediabetes don’t know they have it.

To register for the free class, go to morrishospital.org/events or call 815-705-7367.
