Seniors: Preventing & Managing Diabetes

Vodpod videos no longer available.

According to a recent study, 22 percent of senior citizens aged 65 and older have diabetes and nearly 40 percent suffer with a form of pre-diabetes, which becomes more common with age. State Representative Edward F. Coppinger hosted a talk on how Seniors can prevent or manage diabetes. To lead the talk, Representative Coppinger invited Fitness Together’s Steve Lichtman and Al Whitaker, Associate Director Communty Programs for the American Diabetes Association, to this year’s Roslindale Senior Palooza.
