Learn about advances in diabetes treatment

Learning you have type 2 diabetes can be frightening. But those with the condition can still live long healthy lives. At "Advances in Diabetes treatment," a free seminar at San Ramon Valley Medical Center this Thursday, health professionals will talk about new oral medications, risk factors, symptoms and how diabetes increases health risks. There will also be details about a recently completed diabetes prevention program study, which concluded that people with pre-diabetes can prevent it from developing by changing their eating habits and increasing physical activity.

The seminar is free and will be held 7:30-9 p.m., Thursday, March 8, at the south conference room at 7777 Norris Canyon Road. Reservations are required; call (800) 284-2878 or visit www.sanramonmedctr.com .
