Learn about diabetes at YMCA

The Ashland Family YMCA will offer the public a free diabetes screening from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16, in the YMCA lobby.

The Ashland Y is partnering with Oregon Health & Science University's School of Nursing to bring this service to the community. The Y will also present a free lecture at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, focusing on diabetes prevention through healthy food choices.

Local YMCA officials said awareness and education are essential for people to make good lifestyle choices.
