The next Your Health presentation at Northern Michigan University is titled "Diabesity: The Unabated Epidemic of Diabetes and Obesity." The featured presenter is Dr. Saleh Aldasouqi, chief of the endocrinology division at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. The event is scheduled at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, in NMU's Reynolds Recital Hall. Admission is free.
Obesity is one of the biggest predictors of type 2 diabetes and nearly 90 percent of type 2 diabetics are obese or overweight. Aldasouqi will discuss what can be done to prevent and treat "diabesity."
