Shedding unwanted pounds is one of the goals hundreds of thousands of Americans make every January. This year, it's a resolution that Coordinated Youth and Health Services says everyone should make in an effort to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Extra weight, inactivity and older age are just a few of the main risk factors that attendees will have a chance to learn about over the course of a free, six-week, self management program according to Madison County Health Educator Lisa Modrusic.
