African Americans are disproportionately affected by diabetes, 13% over the age of 20 are diagnosed. For this reason, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) Somerset’s Community Health Department is once again offering a free diabetes prevention program for African American adults. Individuals of African and Caribbean descent are invited to attend “The Power Over Diabetes: Empowering Our Brothers and Sisters.” The free 10-week program will begin April 27 in Somerville.
RWJUH’s mission is to have participants of the program join them on the path to a healthier lifestyle. Participants will receive a Type 2 diabetes assessment by a registered nurse with meal planning and nutritional education from a registered dietitian. Participants will also learn tips for preparing their favorite dishes in a healthy way and advice on physical health to help lower their risks of developing diabetes.
Sessions will be held at First Baptist Church located at 132 West High Street in Somerville on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. from April 27 through June 29, 2017.
Participants must be 18 years or older. Registration is required.
