Course Spotlight
Youth and adults alike are becoming overweight in large part because they are failing to engage in enough daily physical motion. Among people with diabetes, inactivity is even more rampant. The good news is that everybody can improve his or her quality of life with diabetes and prevent most of its potential health problems by becoming more fit.
