Are you at risk for diabetes? Everyone should be aware of the risk factors for type 2 diabetes. People who are overweight, under active (living a sedentary lifestyle) and over the age of 45 should consider themselves at risk for the disease. African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and people who have a family history of the disease also are at an increased risk for type 2 diabetes.
As a part of our community’s preparation for LaRue County’s Relay for Life event on May 11-12 at Hodgenville Elementary School, the local Relay for Life Committee is recognizing individual cancer survivors and some of the volunteers. This week, some of the children who volunteer for Relay are featured.
With the LaRue County Relay for Life less than one month away, the 12 local teams are busily fundraising to meet the county goal of $50,000. However, often overshadowed are the many youth who are involved in the community effort.
