DIABETES EDUCATION GROUP DISCUSSES LOSING HOLIDAY POUNDS

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — The Diabetes Education Group at Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) will host a meeting titled “How to Work Off the Holiday Pounds” on Tuesday, January 5, in the medical center’s Private Dining Room One at 11:30 a.m. The group, which meets monthly at MRMC, encourages the public to attend this free event.

Thomas Cobb, an exercise physiologist at MRMC, will be the guest speaker at the next meeting. Cobb will discuss and demonstrate exercises to fit your busy lifestyle, and help with weight loss and lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, which could result in a decrease in your medications.

“Many people indulge over the holidays. This month, we’ll discuss how to lose the extra pounds you may have gained from holiday celebrations, and get in a routine to keep them off into the new year,” said Donna Shedd, diabetes program coordinator.
