Physical Activity and Diabetes.
Exercise is an important part of your diabetes management plan. This session takes lessons from the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program and discusses ways to make physical activity an enjoyable part of your day. Many of us are too busy, too stressed or lost when it comes to finding recreational activities we enjoy. Whether you are pre-diabetic, recently diagnosed with diabetes or have been managing diabetes for a while, this class will be beneficial for you. The goal is to help participants take steps toward better health.
This class takes place Tuesday, June 16, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the Dr. Marion J. Brooks Building, Tarrant County Public Health (corner of Rosedale and Main Street); 1101 S. Main Street, Fort Worth, TX 76104.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders. In SCD, the red blood cells become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a "sickle." People with SCD can live full lives and enjoy most of the activities that other people do. If you have SCD, it's important to learn how to stay as healthy as possible.
