Some types of diabetes are hereditary, some are situational (like gestational diabetes), and some can be prevented. Join FHN dietitian and diabetes educator Nicolette Drane for a free presentation on how to recognize your risk factors as well as how to prevent or manage the disease. You'll also be able to pick up a stash of healthy recipes designed to help keep diabetes in check.
