Reducing the risk, effects of diabetes discussed

RICHLAND — Learn how simple and deliberate lifestyle choices can make all the difference in your health at the Diabetes Education Seminar on Sept. 11 at WSU Tri-Cities.
 
The speaker is Dr. Hans Diehl, director of the Lifestyle Medicine Institute of Loma Linda, Calif., and founder of the Coronary Health Improvement Project (CHIP), a research-based program that facilitates disease reversal by lowering blood cholesterol, triglyceride and blood sugar levels.
 
Adults and children with Type I or Type II diabetes, or who are pre-diabetic, are especially invited.
 
The seminar is at 7 p.m. in the Consolidated Information Center, Room 216, at 2770 University Drive. Admission is free and open to the public. Topics include how to be less insulin resistant, reducing dependency on medication, reversing or avoiding negative health effects associated with diabetes and losing weight.
 
Diehl’s pioneering efforts with Nathan Pritikin and Dr. Denis Burkitt have shown conclusively that many of today’s diseases — including hypertension and obesity — are truly reversible through some simple lifestyle changes. The CHIP program is available locally through Kadlec Regional Medical Center and WSU Tri-Cities. The next seven-week session starts Sept. 26. For more details on CHIP, call 627-6258 or visit www.tricity.wsu.edu/chip.
 
The Diabetes Education Seminar is part of the Chancellor’s Lecture Series for the 20th Anniversary of being a WSU campus. The Chancellor’s Lecture Series is sponsored by Battelle. For more information on the seminar or the lecture series, call 509-372-7264.
