A weekly public affairs show about McKeesport and the Mon Valley, produced in cooperation with WEDO (810) and WZUM (1550).
Topic: Preventing and Living with Diabetes in Western Pennsylvania
Guests: Rob Mitchell, Community Health Strategies, American Diabetes Association; and Gretchen A. North, Associate Vice President, Healthy Living, YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh
How Discussed: The Mon Valley is the northern end of the so-called "diabetes belt" --- a string of counties in 15 states where residents have an abnormally high risk of contracting Type 2 diabetes. Who is at risk, and why? How can people protect themselves from Type 2 diabetes? If they've already been diagnosed, how can they manage it? What resources are available for people at risk?
