Outpatient Medical Center Inc. put some extra free in sugar free by giving away sugar free snacks on Nov. 14. Considering Nov. 14 was World Diabetes Day, OMC Inc. welcomed its patients to taste a sugar free snack in hopes of encouraging them to continue or begin a healthier lifestyle. World Diabetes Day is a day we stop to recognize the growing concern around diabetes and the health threats it causes. One in every two people with diabetes is undiagnosed.
OMC Inc. currently has a program that helps women with pre-diabetes learn how to begin and maintain a healthy lifestyle called CYL2 (Change Your Life 2). CYL2’s goal is to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. After joining the program you’ll receive a life coach to teach you how to eat healthy foods and increase your physical activity. When you’re having a rough day and feel like slipping back into your old habits, your classmates will be there to keep you on track.
For more information on the CYL2 call Cynthia Parker 318-352-9299 ext. 3301
