The Safford City Library has announced a new addition to its Adult program offerings. The University of Arizona will present a free, 12-month program aimed to helping improve the health for those with prediabetes or who meet risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes. Class participants will learn how to develop healthy behaviors to prevent diabetes.  

Ada-Mae Nandino, of the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, refers to this program as a proven lifestyle change program that can help cut the risk of diabetes in half.  

Participants must be over age 18 and have a diagnosis of pre-diabetes or meet the risk factors listed on a simple questionnaire
