Victory Over Diabetes event promotes healthy living

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – November is National Diabetes Awareness month.

The Victory Over Diabetes event was held at the Tubman Museum Saturday. The annual event promotes wellness and healthy living. People had their blood pressure checked and were given free flu shots. Event organizers believe you can still practice healthy habits during the holidays.

“This a great time to walk around and tour some of the Christmas trees and go to the mall and choose some healthy food and recipes,” explained Leslie Potts, Director of Programs and Mission Delivery. 

Research shows diabetes affects almost 13% of adults in Macon.
